Carty Heights opened its doors in November 2007, bringing Episcopal Homes’ quality to the University/Lexington neighborhood. Come by for a tour to see how beautiful HUD-subsidized housing for low-income seniors can be.
Carty Heights is named in honor of Father Denzil Carty (1904-1975). Fr. Carty was rector of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church from 1950 through his retirement in 1975. He was an advocate for civil rights and affordable housing for low-income minorities. Fr. Carty called for “Our rights, with dignity and equality, in education, jobs and housing,” and he devoted his life to making it so. Sylvia Carty continued her husband’s legacy of service as an associate member of the Episcopal Church Home board and as a committee member for many years.
