Last week, Pennrose, Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, Bucks County, the Bucks County Housing Authority and Bensalem Township celebrated the opening of Bensalem Veterans Residences, a 40-unit affordable residential community for seniors and veterans ages 62 and older. Local service providers, including the Bucks County Department of Veteran Affairs, Bucks County Vet Center and Salute 2 Service, will provide on-site supportive services to residents.
Located at 3055 Mechanicsville Road, the 39,673 square-foot apartment community offers 40 one bedroom units in a three-story building. All units feature modern kitchens and central heating and air. In addition, residents have access to robust on-site resident amenities, including a resident lounge with exterior patio, laundry facilities on each floor, a fitness room, and a community service office with conference space where local veteran organizations can meet.
“Bensalem Veterans Residences is a fine example of a public and private partnership supporting veterans,” said Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo. “Bensalem Council and I are extremely proud to have been a part of another Bensalem first, giving back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much serving our country.”
