AFFORDABLE HOUSING

The Sarah’s Circle housing program is the cornerstone of our mission, providing a safe and affordable home for seniors who struggle to make ends meet on fixed incomes. Our goal is to help all of our seniors age in place, keeping them in their own apartments and out of assisted living facilities or nursing homes. To accomplish this, we offer a comprehensive array of supportive programs and interventions.

Application Process

Sarah’s Circle serves seniors age 55 and older who are able to demonstrate the ability to live independently and whose incomes do not exceed 30 percent of area median income (currently $25,500 per year for a single-person household). Applicants for Sarah’s Circle housing must provide proof that they are on the DC Housing Authority waiting list. We maintain an extensive and lengthy waiting list.

Going Beyond

Sarah’s Circle is so much more than an apartment building: we are a community. When a senior moves into Sarah’s Circle, he or she makes a commitment to support neighbors and friends, to participate in our activities and programs, and to give time and talent to make our world a better place.

We invite you to visit us at Sarah’s Circle to see our unique model in action. To arrange a tour, please call (202) 332-1400 ext. 11.
