April 26, 2013

Philadelphia, Pa. – April 26, 2013On Thursday, April 25th, a celebration was held to commemorate the Maple Village at Center in the Park’s ten-year anniversary.  Maple Village is a Pennrose developed and managed property in the Germantown section of Philadelphia that provides quality and affordable housing to seniors, while also offering a variety of resident events, activities and supportive services.

A brief ceremony included speakers from Pennrose, Center in the Park and Unitarian Universalist House Outreach Program, honoring the 11 residents who have lived at the property since its inception.  After the ceremony, attendees took part in activities such as line dancing demonstrations, a performance from the “Songsters,” giveaways, and an exercise class. 

Maple Village is comprised of 70 apartments for seniors who earn less than $26,580 as an individual or $30,360 as a pair.  Each apartment features at least one bedroom, full bath, kitchen and living room.  Residents can take advantage of the many community amenities, including a laundry facility and corner common room on each floor with a 96-seat dining area/community room, conference room, lending library, and covered patio with landscaped gardens. 

“We are proud to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Maple Village,” said Mark H. Dambly, Pennrose President. “Although the amenities help foster an enjoyable and comfortable living environment, the Maple Village staff and residents help make the property more than just a building, but a community.”

Pennrose and Center in the Park co-developed Maple Village in 2003 with financial assistance from various organizations. The property was funded by a land purchase and planning grant from the William Penn Foundation; construction costs were funded by PennHOMES and an allocation of Federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits administered by the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA); with additional help from the Affordable Housing Program (AHP), Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, Sovereign Bank and The Reinvestment Fund.
