The Beacon Service Commitment
Securing low cost, safe housing has become increasingly difficult for many older Americans. More often, seniors on low, fixed incomes cannot afford current rental rates and the scarcity of subsidized rental apartments have excluded a large number from enjoying a fulfilling life. Beacon seeks to enhance the independence, well-being and security of older persons by providing them affordable housing and support services.
Beacon Communities Affordable Housing develops, owns and manages multi-family apartment communities that serve seniors with limited incomes. Through government subsidies, loans and grants, it is able to ensure that elderly persons enjoy living comfortably and with dignity, enriched all the more by their community and the convenience of their homes.
