Jack Long Foundation

Jack Long Foundation develops community based affordable housing

Introducing Elderhouse - a place to gracefully age-in-place

Our newest venture! A new way to provide an affordable and safe way for our seniors to age-in-place.


A new model for single family seniors that emulates aspects of single family living. 14 Assisted & 3 transitional self-contained units. The right balance of independence and support. 


A place to live, visit, and enjoy life.


Elderhouse is designed to encourage socializing and visiting with comfortable, bright, and accessible gathering areas for residents and visitors.


Values and Principles


Dignity. Respect. Belonging.  These are the primary principles of Elderhouse. We asked what's important. "Don't take away our choices", they said. We listened.

Elderhouse changes the face of seniors' assisted living. It respects the right and desire of seniors to remain as active and functional members of their home community. 


The Elderhouse vision grew from conversations with a community that respects and values their seniors and conversations with seniors who what to be decision makers, not dependents.



REAL PEOPLE, REAL STORIES

"I am a senior living in Inglewood House. I have volunteered with the Jack Long Foundation since the start and at the Inglewood Community Association since 1967. We need this facility as soon as possible as we are getting too old and fragile for the existing facilities."

Lorna supported herself working for "temp" agencies, without benefits. She feels fortunate with a subsidized senior's apartment.

She is not sure where she can go when she needs more support.

"This model will address these issues by establishing a housing option that enables seniors to age-in-place, allowing them to maintain a level of independence and integration into their community, while proving supportive services.
