Lutheran Homes Society (LHS) recently announced that it is anticipating finishing Phase II at the Covenant Harbor senior housing community in Oak Harbor, Ohio near the of 2009. When construction is complete, 24 new one-bedroom, independent living apartments will be available for low-income seniors age 62 and older. The HUD-subsidized project is being constructed next to the 14 existing Covenant Harbor apartments that were completed in 2005. In addition to the apartments, construction includes new office space, a kitchen, and a community room, which will be available for use by area residents.
“The affordability; the socialization opportunities, especially during the long winter months; friendships made while living here; the benefits of an ADA compliant building and parking area; and the on-site service coordinator who helps residents find services that allow them to remain independent are all positive aspects about living at Covenant Harbor that residents share with me frequently,” said Sue Perrin, manager.
