Kentucky's first home for women veterans opened its doors in Lexington on July 1. The Thurman-Abbott Home for Lady Veterans will operate as part of a 12-month program designed to aid women veterans in need of support and independence. Four spaces will be available to homeless women Veterans in various combinations that may include the Veterans and their children. The women veterans who are accepted to live in the home have access to mental health services, financial literacy classes, and internship and job placement programs.
