Housing for the Elderly
Affordable Housing for Low-Income Elderly
The National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) has diversified its service components over the last 45 years to meet the priority needs of the community. In 1997, the NVOP built its first of three apartment complexes designed specifically to provide affordable housing for low-income elderly. Teaming with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the NVOP presently provides 170 apartments for the elderly.
All projects are operated on a non-profit basis, and each apartment is eligible for housing assistance vouchers provided by HUD, making the apartments very affordable for eligible elderly residents. Support services include meals on wheels, food bank assistance, visiting nurses, seasonal social events, and many other amenities that provide a safe and comfortable setting for the independent-living residents.
Residents must be elderly, fixed low-income recipients, and must be able to live independently. Currently, all three properties have a waiting list for apartments. More information may be obtained by calling 210-531-0577.
