Seniors can find affordable housing in New Jersey through the Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey, Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development websites. The latter provides links to house and care facilities, independent living centers and subsidized apartments.
The Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey website provides information and a list of affordable senior housing, explains Lutheran Social Ministries of NJ. The church has eight senior communities throughout the state that people can live in as long as they meet the eligibility requirements. The individuals need to be within the age range and have a limited income. These communities include Roosevelt Solar Village, Birchwood at Old Bridge Senior Residence, Lutheran Senior Residence at Pennsauken, Mt. Olive Senior Residence and Mirota Senior Residence. Along with being affordable, these housing sites offer churches, close public transportation and on-site activities.
The Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services also has a website that offers information on affordable housing not only for seniors but for families as well, says the State of New Jersey. On the website are links to the Department of Community Affairs' Guide to Affordable Housing in New Jersey as well as the Area Agency on Aging & Disability Resource Connection.
