Senior Programs

There’s No Place Like Home

The Housing Authority of Glasgow developed the program; “There’s No Place Like Home”, to assist our residents with independent living to avoid pre-mature institutional living.  Our program has received National, U.S. Department of HUD, and local awards for enabling our senior and disabled population to experience a “home-like” environment as long as possible.

We employ a full time Service Coordinator who assesses the need(s) of eligible families.  This person then acts as a liaison between the family and a service provider that can fulfill the family need(s).  We also collaborate with other agencies to plan, organize and provide beneficial programs.  These activities include educational, wellness and health screenings, commodities, meal assistance, safety, and socialization.
Families are informed of the schedule of events through our monthly newsletter, Housing Hi-Lites.

There is also a housekeeping assistance component offered to eligible residents to help with difficult chores.  This may include chores such as cleaning appliances, washing curtains and windows, dusting ceiling fans, etc...  This service can also be utilized when a family has experienced an illness or medical issue that may prevent the temporary completion of basic house cleaning.

For more information on this program, please contact our Service Coordinator at 270 651-3859.



The Housing Authority of Glasgow currently offers two different commodity food programs in partnership with the America’s Second Harvest of Kentucky’s Heartland Program in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
The programs are the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (better known as “The Box Program”) and Temporary Food Assistance Program (the “Bag Program).

The TSFP or Box Program is for low-income elderly individuals only.  Each month the recipients receive a box of non-perishable items that are selected to provide nutritious food selections to supplement the monthly food needs of this targeted population.  This is an income-based program, and although applications are available at the Housing Office, there is a limit to how many individuals can obtain a box each month.   

The TEFAP or Bag Program is also income based, but it is available for all age and household sizes.  There is no application process and/or waiting list.  The family representative only needs to come to the Commodity Distribution Site on the days the Commodity Food Bags are being distributed and provide proof of residence and proof of income.  Once they have been approved they sign the Pick-up Sheet and receive a bag of non-perishable food for that month.  Participants can only receive one bag of food per moth.
