Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly builds and manages exceptional housing in Greater Boston for low and moderate income seniors of all backgrounds. Our buildings offer 1,500 residents independent living within a vibrant community. JCHE is nationally recognized for the distinctiveness and excellence of our communities. Our housing is enriched by supportive services and life-enhancing programs that offer residents a wellness approach to daily life including: fitness facilities and instruction; accessible transportation; meaningful volunteer placements; computer centers; and creative learning, social and cultural opportunities. Our bi-lingual resident service coordinators and 24/7 on-site staff offer invaluable assistance. And if additional help is needed to manage everyday challenges, residents have access to in-home services that continue to foster independent living.
Three of JCHE’s buildings – Ulin House, Leventhal House and Genesis House – are located on one site in Brighton. Golda Meir House and Coleman House are each located in Newton. Morton and Etta Shillman House on the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Campus is located in Framingham.
Our housing is financed by state and federal programs, and through gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Private contributions make it possible for JCHE to go beyond bricks and mortar and offer housing that is so much more than a place to live!
