Mission: Provide seniors with quality homes in a welcoming and diverse community. Offer social and supportive opportunities and ensure access to the princeton community for our residents, all of whom have incomes below 30% of the county median income.
Programs: Elm court ii, inc. Owns 67 one-bedroom apartments and operates under the hud section 202 program with a project rental assistance contract. This allows us to set rents at no more than 30% of each resident's adjusted gross income. Pch development corp, a 501(c)3 entity, manages the building and operations. A licensed social worker is on site to assist residents with referrals to community resources and state-sponsored programs. Free bus service to princeton's shopping areas, library, and senior resource center operates six days a week, and we also provide weekly shuttle service to regional shopping areas. We make podiatry care available on a regular schedule. We strive to build a strong community for our residents, linking them to the seniors in neighboring elm court and empowering them to lead meaningful lives. A residents' association meets regularly with staff and sponsors a newsletter and regular community gatherings. Residents participate in activities such as chair exercise and art lessons, health information lectures, and ted talk discussion groups. Community lounges enable concerts and holiday celebrations. The community garden, created by volunteers and local donors, has become a highlight of elm court ii life. Residents grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers three seasons of the year in the more than 50 plots-some designed with raised or wheelchair-accessible beds.
elm court ii participates in the n. J. Department of human services congregate housing services program. Residents with financial and personal need make co-payments on a sliding scale, and receive daily hot lunches, light housekeeping and personal care from certified home health aides.
