An affordable senior apartment complex in Visalia is celebrating two milestones this month — 40 years of providing housing for low-income seniors and making the final payment on its original mortgage.
The Meadows is a senior community with 100 cottage-style apartments at 3900 W. Tulare Ave. built in 1974 with a $1.26 million loan. The development serves low-income seniors age 62 and over. Residents with Section 8 vouchers issued by the Housing Authority of Tulare County receive priority, the management company said.
The development was the first of four affordable housing projects by Visalia Senior Housing Inc., a local nonprofit, in partnership with Christian Church Homes, a faith-based nonprofit in Oakland that builds and manages affordable housing communities.
