Congregate Housing is a shared living environment designed to integrate the housing and services needs of elders and younger disabled individuals. The goal of Congregate Housing is to increase self-sufficiency through the provision of supportive services in a residential setting. Congregate Housing is neither a nursing home nor a medical care facility. It does not offer 24-hour care and supervision. Services are made available to aid residents in managing Activities of Daily Living in a supportive, but not custodial environment. Each resident has a private bedroom, but shares one or more of the following: kitchen facilities, dining facilities, and/or bathing facilities. The Placement for Congregate Housing is done by a separate waiting list and placement is made by a Congregate Team of Multiple Service Agencies.
The PHA owns and oversees four 689 Group Homes consisting of 24 One Bedroom Units which are run by Independent Social Service Vendors. Occupancy is chosen by the private vendors.
Seeglitz Housing is a Supportive Living Program run by North Shore Elder Services and is a separate waiting list and the age eligibility is 62.
The remaining Elderly Housing Program is one waiting list for all six developments and the age requirement is 60.
The Family Housing is governed by one waiting list for all developments.
You cannot pick and choose which development you apply for.
