After 5-months of assistance, PCDC was able to successfully find homes for 3 senior households at Saint Francis Villa senior apartment in Kensington area, Philadelphia. These seniors signed their leases on June 15th and are moving into their new homes.
In January 2016, PCDC received information about this new senior housing from Catholic Human Services and Presby’s Inspired Life, and immediately hosted an information workshop about this new opportunity. On February 8th, PCDC Program Manager Ping Ho Lee and Housing Counselor Wendy Lee went to the application site to help 6 clients complete their applications. In April, PCDC assisted the 3 remaining qualified clients with their interview processes. And finally in June, these 3 households signed their lease and claimed an apartment as their home. We will feature their stories in the upcoming newsletter articles.
PCDC housing counseling program provides rental counseling to clients who are looking for quality housing. Our staff continues to look for new resources that can be shared with the community.
Upcoming Senior Housing
On July 19th from 2:00 until 3:00 pm, PCDC will offer an information session for those who are interested in senior housing. The workshop will ONLY offer information about senior housing locations in Philadelphia. You will learn how to determine housing that best fits your needs, and hear about eligibility requirements. The workshop is also a good place to find out how government tax credits and subsidized housing come into play when choosing a senior housing site. Anyone interested in knowing more about senior housing opportunities, please call PCDC Ping Ho Lee at 215-922-6156 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any new resources available and would like to share, please feel free to connect to Ping and share the information.
