ALEXANDRIA, Va. July 28, 2021
Volunteers of America National Services was selected by DHA Housing Solutions for North Texas to partner on a mixed income senior affordable residential housing project to be known as The Oaks in Dallas, Texas. The projected is slated to be completed in 2023. VOANS is the wholly controlled nonprofit subsidiary of Volunteers of America created as the sponsor and parent entity for new Volunteers of America housing development projects.
Consisting of 260 units for seniors 62 and older, the mixed use/mixed finance property will include a fully furnished clubhouse, fitness room, business center, activity room, craft room, and healthcare facility leased to a local provider. The site is an ideal site for senior housing as it has the following features and linkages: a bus stop in the front of the site, it is surrounded by single family homes, and an elementary school, with a grocery store, a drug store and a full service medical and surgical hospital less than a mile from the site.
“VOANS is thrilled to develop this project with the DHA and be able to provide on-site healthcare services. We are looking forward to revitalizing this site by creating new affordable housing while providing a safe healthy environment so residents can thrive.” said Sharon Wilson Geno, EVP and chief operating officer, Volunteers of American National Services.
