Presbyterian Villages of Michigan (PVM) hosted a Ground Breaking Ceremony at the Village of Sage Grove on Thursday, May 27th to celebrate its 25th senior living community in the state of Michigan. PVM was awarded a $3.4 million grant by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to build the 38-unit senior apartment community in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Scheduled for completion in spring 2011, this new senior living community will offer one-bedroom apartments of approximately 600 square feet as well as a community room, laundry facilities, lounge areas, and library/internet café.
Each apartment will have an emergency call system and a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator/freezer and stove. Specially designed apartments for mobility-impaired residents will also be available. Potential residents are 62 years of age and older and have a gross annual income of $22,000 or less for one person and $25,150 or less for a two-person household. Rent is based on 30% of residents’ adjusted gross annual income and the remaining rent is covered by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
“We are pleased to become part of the Kalamazoo community and to offer this wonderful new opportunity for quality senior living.” said Roger Myers, president and CEO of Presbyterian Villages of Michigan. “It reflects the core of our mission and vision to be a trusted resource to seniors of all faiths throughout Michigan.”
