Senior housing units open
Homer Senior Citizens Inc., celebrated the opening of four new housing units at Swatzell Terrace Tuesday afternoon, adding to the organization’s ability to offer housing to seniors to Homer.
The units are already rented, with move-in dates set for Jan. 1. Fred Lau, the former administrator at the center, was able to obtain the funding for the project from the Alaska Housing Finance Corp. and construction began in May.
Homer Seniors now has Kachemak Bay, Pioneer Vista, Bartlett Terrace and Swatzell Terrace, which provide a total of 45 units for seniors. Another 40 units are encompassed at Friendship Terrace Assisted Living Residence.
A long waiting list of 60 seniors wanting housing remains, said the current administrator, Sue Samet.
