LGBT Elder Housing Opens in Philadelphia

SKY17-A56 new units for low-income LGBT elders have opened in Philadelphia, after years of planning, fundraising and construction.

The John C. Anderson “apartments are partnered with the nearby William Way LGBT Community Center to provide residents with counseling, programs and events.”  Rents range from $192 to $786 based on income, which can be no more than $33,000/year.  There is a waiting list for the lower-cost units, although about a dozen of the higher-cost units remain open at this time.

The Washington Post ran a video on the project as well as an article.  You can find both at http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/affordable-housing-for-gay-seniors-opens-in-pa/2014/01/14/d3100f32-7ce7-11e3-97d3-b9925ce2c57b_story.html
