Penn Gardens

Penn Gardens is a Section 8/202 property. Each of the twenty one-bedroom units of Penn Gardens has an occupancy standard limited to one low-income adult (age eighteen years of age or older) who has a severe and persistent mental illness but who has been judged by professionals as being capable of independent living in the community. Tenants live independently with support available through Recovery Coaching, Residential Services Alumni programs, Wellspring Clubhouse, among other area supports.

Income limits for residency are established by the federal government and are identified as being "Very Low" or "Extremely Low" by area standards. Based on a resident's verified personal income, s/he pays a calculated portion of the unit's gross market rent and HUD subsidizes the remainder.

Applications for residency are available at Penn Gardens (612 S Main Street, Sellersville, PA) or may be requested by phone (215.257.5074). However, applications are only accepted during "open enrollment" periods with the Waiting List closed to new applicants at such times that the wait for an available unit is longer than one year. 

For more information, contact Tammy McCarthy or Tara Detweiler at 215.257.5074.
