Why the Jewish Community Housing Corporation?

Simply because If you know us, you know that we are a vibrant, active organization that is not afraid to do big things for our community.

Lester Senior Housing

When the JCHC identified the need for market-rate housing and assisted living for seniors, the JCHC raised money and built the Lester Senior Housing Community, including the Margaret and Martin Heller Independent Living Apartments, the Josh and Judy Weston Assisted Living Residence & the Aresty Family.

Village Apartments & Federation Plaza

When the JCHC identified the need for housing for middle-income seniors, the JCHC raised money, planned and built the Village Apartments of the Jewish Federation, a 92-unit apartment building in South Orange.

Affordable Housing

When the JCHC identified the need for affordable housing for seniors on a fixed income, the JCHC raised money, and built three communities in West Orange, Irvington and South Orange providing more than 325 subsidized apartments for low-income seniors.

specialized Memory Care

When the JCHC identified the need for specialized care for those ravaged by Alzheimers disease, we raised money, rebuilt and dedicated an entire floor to become a secure, assisted living memory care suite.
