The faith-based Greater Bridgeport Jewish Housing Corp. owns and manages the site known as Seymour I. Hollander Apartments, commonly referred to as "The Hollander House". The Hollander House is an Equal Housing Opportunity Provider, non-profit, and non-denominational.
Extensively remodeled from 2012 to 2014, the Hollander House leases 85 apartments to senior citizens aged 62 or older who qualify for federally subsidized housing under the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 8 guidelines. Rent is 30% of a tenant's total gross income, and includes all utilities (heat, air conditioning, hot water, and electricity).
"We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the Nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin."
MISSION STATEMENT: "The mission of The Greater Bridgeport Jewish Housing Corporation is to provide senior citizens, aged 62 and older, who meet federal HUD Section 8 requirements, with a high quality, secure, and affordable residence offering social service facilitation on site and activities appropriate to the residents; all based upon Jewish values and traditions."
