Our Service Commitment
Securing low-cost, safe housing has become increasingly difficult for many older Americans. More often, seniors on low, fixed incomes cannot afford current rental rates and the scarcity of subsidized rental apartments have excluded a large number from enjoying a fulfilling life. We seek to enhance the independence, well-being and security of older persons by providing them affordable housing and support services.
This property is owned by Interfaith Housing and managed by Beacon Communities, a department within ABHOW, which develops, owns and manages multi-family apartment communities that serve seniors with limited incomes. Through government subsidies, loans and grants, it is able to ensure that older adults enjoy living comfortably and with dignity, enriched all the more by their community and the convenience of their homes.

FAIR HOUSING POLICY
It is the policy and commitment of Beacon Communities and Interfaith Housing that we do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, familial status, marital status, source of income, handicap or disability, or arbitrary characteristics in the rental of its residential dwellings. Interfaith Housing and Beacon affirm our policy of equal housing opportunity pursuant to state and federal fair housing laws.
REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION POLICY
It is our policy to provide reasonable accommodations in housing for housing applicants and residents with disabilities where reasonable accommodation is necessary to provide them with an equal opportunity to use and enjoy their apartment and the common areas of the rental community where they live.
This policy is in furtherance of the goal of providing affordable housing to low-income persons regardless of disability and in compliance with applicable federal, state and local law. A reasonable accommodation is a modification or change that Interfaith Housing property can make to its policies procedures, processes and/or to the person’s apartment or common area, which would assist an otherwise eligible person with a disability to benefit from the community. A reasonable accommodation must not pose an undue financial and administrative burden to the community or result in a fundamental alteration of its program.
The reasonable accommodation policy and procedures outlined here applies to applicants and residents at the Interfaith Housing communities who are qualified “individuals with a disability." The community may require reliable documentation or verification of the disability; that the individual needs the accommodation, and that the accommodation is likely to be effective. The community will thoroughly and promptly consider any request for a reasonable accommodation, and will explain the basis for any denial to the requestor. In the course of evaluating and responding to a reasonable accommodation request, the community will seek to engage in a process of dialogue and joint problem-solving with applicants and residents.
