As you may or may not know H.O.M.E. owns, manages, and maintains three residential buildings dedicated to intergenerational living, which enables low-income seniors to live in either individual apartments or shared living.
Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.
The Nathalie Salmon House Good Life Senior Residences is preparing to say goodbye to long time cook, and former resident assistant Brandon Melby. Brandon, his partner Kara (former resident assistant turned Good Life Senior Residences coordinator of the Pat Crowley House), and their two children Ethan (age 4) and Rayna (4 months) have been living in one of the four family apartments in the Nathalie Salmon House for the past 5 years.
“H.O.M.E. is a very unique place that offers more than just the services they provide. It’s a community that truly cares for one another, and I’m glad to have called it home for so long!”
The affordable housing offered by H.O.M.E. has been intergenerational by design from the very start. In 1982, Pat Crowley House opened its doors and became the home of twelve seniors, four college-age resident assistants and the young family of our shared living coordinator. Apartments for families with young children were included when we opened Nathalie Salmon House in 1994 and Blackhawk Manor in 2004.
It’s back to school time!
You might be asking, but H.O.M.E. serves seniors, this time of year must not mean much to you, right? Wrong. Back to school means a lot of activity at H.O.M.E!
Whenever I tell someone who is unfamiliar with H.O.M.E. about our housing program I am almost always asked “So, it’s like a nursing home”?
