Providing access to affordable housing has the greatest positive impact on the quality of life for many low-income seniors in San Diego. While surviving on a small fixed income to pay for rent, food and medication, seniors are at risk of homelessness and too often begin the downward spiral from independence to institutionalization.
Senior Community Centers therefore opened its first affordable housing complex, Potiker Family Senior Residence, in 2003 in San Diego’s East Village and added a second complex, City Heights Square, in 2007 in City Heights.
