Providence Place is a high-quality, supportive housing program founded by the Sisters of Providence and owned and managed by Providence Health and Services. Designed and built especially for low-income, aging seniors, the building features 39 private apartments with all the comforts of home. Each apartment includes full kitchen amenities, a private bathroom with tub or walk-in shower, built-in storage and air conditioning. Shared laundry facilities and welcoming community spaces are available to all residents.
Located in Chehalis, Washington, Providence Place overlooks the beautiful Chehalis valley. Many of the apartments face the valley as does the spacious community room. A local bus stops at the corner of the building, providing residents with easy access to nearby grocery stores, medical facilities and the local senior center.
Providence places a high value in supporting individual residents and creating a vibrant community by providing raised garden beds, a shared computer lab with internet access, gathering spaces for resident groups, and a wide variety of scheduled activities including educational and recreational programming. A Service Coordinator can help residents identify and access local resources and services, and can advocate for residents who need assistance.
Providence Place receives an operating subsidy from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD requirements state that applicants for housing at Providence Place must be at least 62 years of age at the time of application and their annual income cannot exceed 50% of the area median income. Residents pay approximately 30% of their monthly income toward their rent and utilities.
Providence Place provides equal housing opportunities for all prospective tenants regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, parental/family status, marital status, age, ancestry, sexual orientation, creed, political ideology, gender identity or membership in any other class of persons.
