The City of Santa Cruz Retains Affordable Senior Housing
Christian Church Homes of Northern California’s mission is to provide “Affordable Quality Housing in Caring Communities.” Recently, Christian Church Homes partnered with the CMFA on an acquisition/rehabilitation of the Garfield Park Village. Originally constructed in 1964 the site provides affordable housing to low-income seniors age 62 and older with incomes of 50% and 60% of area median income. The 16-month renovation will include new kitchens, bathrooms in each of the units. The heating and plumbing will also be upgraded. Christian Church Homes will improve site accessibility and will make three units handicap accessible. In addition, a bona fide service coordinator/social worker will provide ongoing assistance will be provided to residents free of charge. Nestled in the City of Santa Cruz, the community consists of cottage style apartments and a 2 story low rise building, offers 94 apartments. Close to the beach, shopping, and public transportation, Garfield Park Village will soon be a highly desirable and unique place to call home.
