Evergreen Secures Financing for Affordable Assisted Living Community in Indiana

Evergreen Real Estate Group has secured financing for Green Oaks of Valparaiso, a three-story, 120-unit assisted living community meant for low-income older adults in Valparaiso, Indiana.

The $30 million project is planned to include 48 studio and 72 one-bedroom apartments for older adults who are 62 or older and have incomes at or below 60% of area median income. The community will also offer financial assistance for residents who qualify.


Amenities include a community room with a kitchen, media and theater room, computer room, meeting room, fitness center, salon, library, community garden and an outdoor area with a pond, courtyard and pavilion.

The community will seek licensure as a residential care facility from the Indiana Department of Health and approval to provide assisted living Medicaid waivers from the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration.
