The John C. Anderson Apartments


The dmhFund has worked tirelessly for the past 6 years to develop an affordable housing facility for low income seniors that is friendly to the LGBT community.  With the backing of a wide array of organizations and individuals that make up the LGBT community in Philadelphia, and the support of dozens of elected officials on at all levels of government, the dmhFund was successful in raising the nearly $20 million necessary to complete the project. 

Partnering with Pennrose Properties, a nationally recognized leader in the development of affordable housing, the dmhFund closed on project financing in September 2012 to build the first LGBT friendly senior housing development in the country financed, in part, with the sale of low income housing tax credits.  The project, known as the John C. Anderson Apartments, is located in the heart of Philadelphia’s “Gayborhood” and will offer safe, affordable and friendly housing to 56 low income seniors.  Construction began in October 2012 and will be available for occupancy in 2013.

Information about leasing will be made available 6 months before the building is scheduled for opening.  If you would like to join our mailing list to learn more about the building, and to be alerted when the lease up process begins, click here.
