The Marigold at 11th Street - Washington, DC
Faced with the growing number of frail low income seniors, The District of Columbia (DC) Housing Authority has transformed a public housing building into a state-of-the art assisted living facility. The renovation was made possible through a stimulus grant. This is the first public housing assisted living facility in Washington, DC.
Centrally located, the facility caters to public housing seniors and others in the community needing services to age in place. The facility provides a host of amenities and services that include an adult day care center, wellness center, activity room, commercial kitchen and dining area. All units have a full bathroom, kitchenette and living room.
The D.C. Housing Authority is one of the largest in the nation with thousands of public housing units throughout the District of Columbia. The demand for this type of affordable assisted living continues to grow exponentially but there are few, if any, providers catering exclusively to low income seniors.
Mia Senior Living is under contract with the housing authority to implement and manage this unique program. The project will receive rental subsidies from the housing authority. The facility opened Summer 2014.
