Elderly Apartments accepting applications
South Pointe Place, the new elderly housing complex of Volunteers of America is now officially accepting applications.
The 50-unit complex will house low income seniors, who can live independently. Located at 1133 South Pointe Parkway in Shreveport (behind the Shreve City Walmart), South Pointe should open later this spring.
All units are one-bedroom and include a living area, kitchen with granite counter tops, refrigerator, pantry, built in closets, and heat and air. Community rooms will be located on each floor, and the facility is non-smoking.
As well, the Volunteers of America Adult Day Health Center will move to the complex and be housed on the first floor.
Rent will be based on the family’s income. Tenants will pay 30% of monthly adjusted income for the family.
To qualify for the apartment, resident households must include at least one person who is 62 years of age or more at the time of occupancy and whose household adjusted income is at or below $20,400.
Prior to completion, applications will be mailed to those on the waiting list first and then to others. Contact Linda Jarrell at 318-221-8404 ext. 176 for more information.
