CommunityWorks in West Virigina, Inc. is excited to share some impactful projects, along with collaborations that have previously and are currently taking place.

Senior Living Communities

The purpose of this new senior housing is to offer attractive, comfortable, and affordable housing that provides social opportunities and brings services closer to our seniors. These senior living communities will address seven key components of a livable community:

1. Mobility;
2. Community integration;
3. Access to services;
4. A mix of housing;
5. Adaptability to individual needs;
6. Affordability to serve a mix of incomes;
7. Supportive community features and services.

This project will demonstrate that West Virginia communities can be attractive, safe, and healthy places for elders to live, while identifying best practices, barriers, funding needs, resources, and marketability factors of senior-friendly communities and models.

Led by CommunityWorks and West Virginia Partnership for Elder Living, Inc. (WVPEL), the Senior Living Project is a collaboration of experts in affordable housing, housing development, finance, health and human services, and community development that are working toward better and more affordable housing for the growing elder population in West Virginia.

Within the state, nearly 500 individuals are turning 65 every week. Many of these seniors are living in homes that are not physically safe to remain in (e.g. old electrical systems, old roofs, or rotted supports) and/or are creating health problems (e.g. faulty heating and cooling, or plumbing systems malfunction). Seniors living on fixed income are having a hard time fixing such problems. Therefore, other housing alternatives are important as our senior population continues to grow.

CWWV and WVPEL are partnering with three communities in West Virginia to provide technical and monetary assistance to become model senior living communities. Over the next few years, CWWV, WVPEL, and a group of experts will be working with these communities to make their proposed visions a reality.
2016 West Virginia Housing Conference Photo Gallery
The 2016 WV Housing Conference was a collaborative effort between Community Works in West Virginia, Inc., Habitat for Humanity of WV, WV Community Action Partnership, WV Housing Development Fund, WV Partnership for Elder Living., and Mid-Atlantic Affordable Housing Management Association. Annually, the conference attracts more than 300 housing advocates, lenders, developers, administrators and policy makers from the non-profit, public, and private sectors each year. This year's theme, Housing Our Future, featured over 70 workshops plus opportunities to learn and network with national, state, and local experts. From the nuts and bolts of housing development to funding tools and innovative models, this annual conference recognizes the important connection of housing to health, economic development, and social stability for our children, families, and elder population.
