Glen East, Dothan AL 2011 Senior Housing
On May 26, 2011, JPH & Associates, Inc. attended the ribbon cutting of Glen East, in Dothan, Alabama, an affordable rental community for seniors. JPH & Associates, Inc. drafted/submitted the grant and coordinated the funding process from start to finish. The facility was developed by a unique partnership which involved a local nonprofit corporation (Wiregrass Foundation) and a national nonprofit corporation (B’nai B’rith Housing, Inc.). Wiregrass Foundation donated the land and countless hours of support, and B’nai B’rith brought forth extensive affordable housing experience and insight. Funding of $3.8 million originated from HUD’s Section 202 program and a total of 39 one bedroom units were constructed. The Co-Sponsors elected to utilize a design that created a village atmosphere in which smaller buildings with multiple units open up to outside courtyards and walkways. The central focal point of the project is the front entrance and community building which will house administrative staff and provide for a meeting area for the residents. Funding of $4 million, for a second phase, has been procured and construction is anticipated this summer for an additional 37 units.
