Ground was broken Monday for a residential complex in Bowling Green that will provide living, working, and recreational space to adults on the autism spectrum.
The residential buildings for LifeWorks at WKU will be located on Adams Street, near the campus of Western Kentucky University. Existing apartment buildings are being renovated for the project, with six residents scheduled to move in next fall.
“At WKU, we work to transform the lives of our students and elevate our community,” President Timothy Caboni said. “Public-private partnerships, such as this, are incredibly important to our efforts in accomplishing our mission.”
