Shirley Meadows includes 58 units of supportive and affordable housing for elderly households, age 62 and older, of which there will be 55 one-bedroom units and 3 two-bedroom units. The housing will be designed to address the immediate needs of seniors with incomes ranging from moderate (60% Area Median Income) to extremely low (30% AMI). Eight (8) of these units will be set aside for homeless or at-risk seniors, providing a safe, permanent and service-enriched environment for this most vulnerable population.
Each of the 58 apartments will have a full bathroom and kitchen with rooms and hallways designed to support the needs of those with disabilities and will be easily converted to full ADA/MAAB accessibility standards if and when that is needed for the tenants.
The project also includes a substantial supportive services component designed to provide access to education and training, and health care services so that will allow seniors to age in place. The property is smoke-free; smoking in units or on the property is prohibited. Pets are allowed within specific limitations per the pet guidelines.
