A Northern Kentucky apartment complex is just days away from shutting down, leaving its tenants homeless.
Tenants at the Heritage Park Apartments in Independence were notified last week the buildings were condemned and everyone had to move out by Sunday Sept. 30.
Lakeside Christian Church, St. Barbara and St. Vincent DePaul are helping people find financial assistance to cover the cost of moving and a new apartment.
"These people were displaced," said Erica Ronnebaum with Lakeside Christian."There's a lot of expenses that go with moving and we're going to look at possibly needing more assistance from some of them for the next month or two quite frankly."
"We've helped them as much as we can with getting deposits or getting first month's rent, back utilities in some cases," said Ronnebaum.
So far 30 families, more than half, have found a place to live, including tenants William Butts and Bryan Crawford.
"We've been able to get some assistance and actually find a decent landlord that's understanding and willing to work with us in our new place," said Butts who is moving to Highland Heights.
"I appreciate all their help, I really do," said Crawford.
The condemned property is now managed by George Fels, who told FOX19 last week the area will eventually be turned into upscale multi-unit family homes.
