Samaritas Affordable Living believes that no matter your budget, everyone deserves a beautiful, comforting place to live. Samaritas Affordable Living in Alpena provides over 60 seniors with low to no income a quiet and affordable place to call home surrounded by natural beauty on eight acres. This community features its own unique blend of residences, amenities, programs and healthcare services with one-bedroom apartments specifically designed for senior accessibility. These funds would be a tremendous help with providing resident activities and education such as healthy cooking classes using produce from the on-site garden, gardening equipment to grow fresh food, exercise programs, gardening classes, and crafting classes that all contribute to a happy and healthy lifestyle for these low income seniors. Keeping residents engaged in these types of activities and programs better prepares them take on the future and limit any medical, physical or emotional difficulties that can present in older adults.
