For more than four decades, Menorah Housing Foundation (MHF) has managed affordable senior housing and provided an array of supportive services. Recognized in 2013 as a long-standing leader in affordable housing by its expert peers in the Southern California Association of Nonprofit Housing (SCANPH), MHF was named the 2013 Developer of the Year! MHF’s new development, Vineland Avenue Senior Housing, was also honored with a second SCANPH prize — the competitive “Homes Within Reach” Award — as 2013 Senior Housing Development of the Year. Recognized in 2012 as a national leader in affordable senior housing, MHF received the Met Life/Enterprise Foundation Award for Excellence in Affordable Senior Housing, an honor granted to only four non-profits nationwide. The overall needs of tenants in MHF properties receive highest priority. Recreational activities, entertainment programs, and resource and referral options are available to residents. On-site professional MHF Service Coordinators offer case management, needs assessment, and a variety of informational workshops to assist building tenants.
MHF also utilizes the expertise of local community agencies to offer on-site tenant programs such as English language classes, computer training, legal assistance, healthy aging and financial planning, to promote empowerment and a sense of community among MHF residents. A comprehensive MHF Service Coordination program assists tenants to remain independent in their own homes as long as feasible and creates a supportive environment for the many MHF tenants who live alone.
