Meta Housing is committed to prioritizing senior citizens when planning and developing affordable housing projects.
“Older adults are at the center of California’s housing affordability and homelessness crisis,” says Kasey Burke, President at Meta Housing. “Many seniors are being forced to choose between paying rent, purchasing food, buying important medications, and receiving medical care. Due to these compounding factors, senior citizens face significant challenges when it comes to housing.”
Meta’s senior housing communities offer units priced for households earning 30%-70% of the area median income and cater to seniors who are living on disproportionately low and fixed incomes.
For example, Metro @ Buckingham Senior Apartments is a transit-oriented affordable housing community for seniors age 62 years and older. The community features 102 one-bedroom affordable senior housing units within walking distance of the Crenshaw/Martin Luther King Jr. Station on LA County Metro’s new Crenshaw/LAX light rail line. The property offers accessible walkways and elevators located throughout and include an on-site gym, game room, library, and laundry room.
“Affordable senior housing will not only provide residents the privilege of aging gracefully in their hometown, but also bring them closer to their community, neighbors, friends, and families,” Burke adds.
The continuation of affordable senior housing projects is made possible due to Meta’s ability to foster long-term, trusted partnerships with local city government, and like-minded organizations such as Citi Community Capital and Bank of America.
Meta Housing has completed 43 senior housing projects to date, totaling 4,495 units across California.
