JCHC Licensed to Provide Assisted Living Services to Low-Income Seniors in HUD-Subsidized Communities

The Jewish Community Housing Corporation (JCHC) has been granted licensing by the state of New Jersey that will allow it to provide an Assisted Living Program (ALP) to low-income seniors residing at rent subsidized communities. These include our own Jewish Federation Plaza in West Orange and the B’nai B’rith Federation House in South Orange, but may later extend to other HUD properties in northern NJ. Only a few organizations in the state of New Jersey are currently licensed to provide this kind of in-home care. Through this ALP, seniors living in these affordable housing apartments in Essex County, New Jersey will now receive medically-necessary services and assistance that they could not otherwise afford, addressing a healthcare gap that affects almost 160,000 seniors in the state of NJ.

How the JCHC will Utilize its Assisted Living Program License

Once we have the ALP model serving residents at the Jewish Federation Plaza in West Orange and the South Orange B’nai B’rith Federation House in South Orange, the JCHC will have the opportunity to bring these vital services to other subsidized, affordable housing apartment buildings in Essex County. With more than 10,000 seniors living in such buildings, and only one other ALP provider operating in Essex County, the JCHC intends to engage other property owners to meet this greater need to help seniors to successfully “age in place” with dignity.
