New homes for displaced Graves Co. tornado victims.


MAYFIELD, Ky. (KFVS) – Those displaced by the deadly tornado that ripped through Mayfield have a new resource to help them find a new roof over their heads.

Homes and Hope for Kentucky helps with long-term disaster recovery in Mayfield and Graves County.

Its objective is to rebuild houses and it is part of the land on which the volunteers will rebuild.

The co-chair for Homes and Hope for Kentucky says five homes are approved for construction right now, but more are on the way.

“We hope to build 50 to 100 as needed. There are other organizations like ours, we welcome that, so this number will be determined based on need. We are looking for owners who had no home insurance or not enough home insurance. We have Mennonite and Amish volunteer labor that will rebuild them.

Friday at 3 p.m. there will be a groundbreaking ceremony for the first house at 515 North Sixth Street in Mayfield.

Heather Nesler says the first five families receiving the homes will be there, along with Governor Andy Beshear, Kentucky State Representative Richard Heath, Kentucky State Senator Jason Howl, Mayfield Mayor Kathy O’ Nan and Graves County Executive Judge Jesse Perry.
