Low-Income Housing for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities
It’s no secret that housing in Hawaii is very expensive. It’s difficult to access housing, even more so for our low-income participants, who rely mostly on Social Security, and for some, earn part-time working income. Because the housing barrier is so significant, decades ago the Arc of Hilo wisely developed three housing complexes to offer housing security to low-income seniors, and adults with disabilities.
Even if you don’t have an apartment yet, and you’re on the Medicaid Waiver, remember that the Arc of Hilo Personal Attendant care can provide services to you in your home, and in the community, including shopping, meal planning, cleaning, and community access, such as visits to the doctor.
