• We build better homes and create better lives for older people.

    30+ years of experience. 65 apartment communities built. 4,700 apartment units created.

  • The average income of our residents is only $13,500 a year, making them vulnerable to living in unsafe housing or neighborhoods. In fact, fifteen percent of our residents were previously homeless. We provide affordable housing because we know a safe home is the foundation for a high-quality life. Our apartments are designed with older people in mind, and include features like zero-step entries, roll-in showers, and community spaces. They’re more accessible than 99% of housing in the country and allow our residents to age in their homes and avoid Medicaid nursing homes.


    But we don't do it alone – our work is made possible by our incredible partners, including developers, architects, engineers, contractors, construction companies, and more. We partner with public organizations and private firms to build housing communities while helping you advance your organizational goals.
