CHAI currently oversees the management of 16 senior housing communities comprising 1,639 units, 1 affordable family building with 16 units, and 6 homes for people with chronic mental illness, housing 20 residents.
CHAI's Weinberg Senior Living Communities
CHAI’s Weinberg Senior Living Communities were developed to provide quality and service-enriched affordable housing to low-income seniors with incomes at, or below, 60% of area median income. CHAI's Weinberg Senior Living Communities offer a social and community-oriented environment for independent seniors 62+ and residents under 62 with a disability.* CHAI is one of the premier developers of such housing in Maryland. Since 1994, CHAI has developed a total of 1,639 units in 16 buildings. CHAI's Weinberg Senior Living Communities are managed by our partner, Edgewood Management.
Housing for People with Disabilities (HOPED)
CHAI HOPED housing program offers affordable, quality housing for adults diagnosed with a mental disorder. The CHAI HOPED program enables low-income individuals to live independent, self-sufficient lives in single-gender shared houses. CHAI currently owns six houses with 20 residents.
Affordable family housing in the community is critical to provide workforce residents access to housing and neighborhood amenities. In FY16, CHAI purchased Fallstaff Apartments, a 13-unit market-rate community. CHAI developed the property into CHAI Fallstaff Apartments, a 16-unit Affordable Family Housing Community that primarily serves residents with incomes at, or below, 60% of area median income. Four of the 16 units are for residents with disabilities with incomes at, or below, 30% of area median income. Three commercial units were converted into apartments, two of which are ADA compliant.
