Affordable Housing Facility gets new Name: POTIKER City Heights Residence

October 1, 2013 - Serving Seniors

Senior Community Centers hosted an intimate gathering on Monday, Sept. 23 to honor a family with a big heart – Sheila and Hughes Potiker. The evening reception celebrated the family’s generous financial support of a $1 million matching gift challenge to sustain the future of low-income seniors now and for years to come.

To recognize the family’s ongoing leadership, Senior Community Centers renamed City Heights Square, a multi-story affordable housing complex designed to provide at-risk seniors with the protection and support they deserve, to the Potiker City Heights Residence. This is the second Senior Community Centers housing project funded by the Potiker Family. Sheila and Hughes son, Brian Potiker, spoke at the event on behalf of his family:

“My parents were very aware that many seniors don’t have a safe place to live. They don’t have anyone to watch or care for them, particularly when they’re most vulnerable. This is why this facility was so important to them.”

Potiker City Heights Residence is located at 4065 43rd Street. The residence consists of 150 affordable studios and one-bedroom apartments between 350 and 500 square feet each. Rent is far below the average high cost for housing in San Diego. Residents receive quality support services that prevent and remove the barriers to independent living, including nutritious breakfast and lunch, activities and socialization opportunities, access to a registered nurse and social service case management.

    Do you currently have any vacancies for a 62 yr old single lady (my cousin) with a very limited social security income? She is a non smoker/non drinker & very responsible person. Sadly down on her luck currently. Thank you.

    My wife and I are in our early 60s, on SSI and have a 15 yr old chihuahua. We don’t smoke drink or party. Just looking for affordable haousing in this terrible housing shortage.
    You building looks nice and it’s just what we’ve been looking for.
