If Your Income Is Low, Affordable Housing at a United Church Homes Community Might Be Right for You
Because Everyone Deserves a Home
If finances are a concern or you are unable to cover your monthly costs, know that you’re not alone. Today, more 7 million adults over the age of 65 are living at or below the official poverty level. Ensuring that affordable housing is readily available so that older adults are able to enjoy high-quality, independent and financially secure lives has taken on new urgency, not just for individuals and their families, but for the nation as a whole.
At United Church Homes, we serve the most underserved populations. We provide affordable housing for older adults who meet federal income qualifications across the country. With rent based on 30 percent of adjusted monthly income, our housing communities help those at the lowest income levels have a secure and comfortable home. We own or manage communities in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia. You’ll never be far from loved ones when you live at a UCH community.
Our faith-inspired communities ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and respect. All are welcome in our housing communities where we work to help residents experience all that life has to offer — physically, emotionally and spiritually. Each community has an onsite housing manager, and some communities can coordinate health care resources for residents. If you or a loved one is struggling to make ends meet, it might be time to consider the benefits of applying to a United Church Homes affordable housing community.

Affordable Housing Communities That End Isolation
Isolation and loneliness are common among older adults. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 11 million older adults, or 28 percent of people aged 65 and older, live alone. That number will only grow as more adults reach retirement age. United Church Homes’ communities provide older adults with opportunities to build a close-knit network of friends and neighbors to combat isolation and improve mental and physical health.
United Church Homes welcomes older adults from all backgrounds, operating over 60 affordable housing communities across 13 states and two Native American nations. UCH communities do not discriminate based upon race, color, creed, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, age, disability, genetic information or ancestry.
