Christian Housing facilities are categorized under the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 202, a program for the elderly as well as mobility impaired persons, 18 years of age and older, who need the features of a handicap unit. Residents contribute 30% of their income for rent with the remaining portion being funded by the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program. All applicants must fall under a certain income level to be eligible for housing at one of these facilities. For additional information, please visit www.huduser.org.
Designed for independent living, each apartment unit contains wall-to-wall carpet, a private bath, equipped kitchen, individually controlled heating and air conditioning units, a bedroom and living-dining room area. Residents typically bring their own furnishings from their previous household. Units have a pull-cord emergency alert device in both the bedroom and bathroom, which will summon help.
A multitude of services are provided at each center to meet the physical, social, spiritual and psychological needs of the individual. Each high-rise creates and thrives on its own community spirit – a characteristic that sets Christian Housing apart. By visiting any of the Christian Housing facilities, one can clearly appreciate this feeling of kinship. The citizens who live in these facilities have created communities of fellowship and support that make the transition from owning a home easy. Residents have the benefits of two worlds – they can enjoy their privacy, and they can always choose to be with others too. The philosophy which created Christian Housing Inc. continues to permeate and meet the need of our society for dignified and economical living arrangements for senior citizens and the mobility impaired.
