Public Housing for Seniors
Each development was designed and built with your needs in
mind. Spacious, unfurnished apartments give you room to have the
things around you that make it a home. Efficiencies and
one-bedroom units are available. Each apartment is a private
living environment including a full-size kitchen equipped with basic
appliances. With some restrictions, small pets are allowed, so you
may bring that special family member. Our Centers' main dining

disabled or handicapped accessible throughout the facility.
Security is peace of mind
Feeling secure covers many areas, and the OCHA has taken care to see
that our residents have peace of mind. We have our own uniformed

days a week. In addition, eight-foot iron fences are used to limit
entry onto the grounds. Each Center is equipped with an automatic
sprinkler system in case of fire.
Emergency call buttons are located in each apartment, and we use the
