Filipino Community Village
Filipino Community Village provides affordable, low-income housing to seniors and the bottom floor is the Innovation Learning Center (ILC), which focuses on STEAM programming for youth.
Designed by Rolluda Architects and built by Beacon Development & Human Good, the Filipino Community Village is a first of its kind that will provide affordable, low-income housing to seniors as well as an expanded science-technology-engineering-arts-math (STEAM) program to youth. The Village will be an expansion of the current Filipino Community Center that was purchased in 1965 and renovated in 2008.
We are pioneering a model that integrates our culturally specific social service programs with housing for seniors, along with a safe learning environment and space for our youth. The Village will have 5 stories with 95 units of affordable housing for seniors, many of whom struggle with cultural isolation, loneliness, and are burdened with the increasing cost of housing. The Village will feature:
Updated staff office space
Computer room for residences
34 parking spaces
Common areas for residences and their guests to socialize
Multi-purpose community space for health screening, community meetings and childcare
Cultural heritage activities and classes for youth and families to learn and rediscover their language, music, arts and customs
