Adams Place in Cochranton Approved for PHFA Support

HARRISBURG (July 11, 2019) After the Adams Place senior housing project received Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) approval this morning, Sen. Michele Brooks said she appreciated the opportunity to work with and support the residents of the Cochranton community, Borough Council, the CARE group, Tyler Hudson and so many others in helping to make the project a reality for our loved ones.

“I would like to thank Tyler Hudson, CARE, Cochranton Borough Council, college students, PHFA, and our many other dedicated partners for their commitment to creating a place that loved ones can truly call home,” Sen. Brooks said.  “Like them, I have a passion for keeping our seniors in the community that they have called home for decades.  This wonderful project is innovative in its approach, featuring inter-generational projects, a canning kitchen, an outdoor pavilion, and a host of other amenities and activities that will truly enable our loved ones to enjoy their golden years to the fullest.”    

The project will include 39 units for seniors aged 62 and over.  A three-story apartment building for seniors will be constructed on North Franklin Street on the north side of the borough.  In addition to these units, amenities will include a community room with kitchen, a fitness center, shared laundry, front and back porches, and a large outdoor green space with room for raised beds for community gardens and a gazebo.

 “Adams Place will help meet the need for affordable senior housing in Crawford County,” said Brian Hudson, PHFA executive director and CEO. “This new development will be an asset for the communities surrounding Cochranton.”

The development is located by a Dollar General store and the Cochranton Community Service Center, which currently includes a pharmacy, credit union, and two doctors’ offices.

“With Crawford County’s growing aging population, there is a need for affordable, accessible housing for older citizens. These new homes, in partnership with the new Conneaut Lake senior housing, will give our loved ones the opportunity to age in place in the hometowns where they have grown up, close to family and in a community of supportive friends.”
