Community Heritage Senior Apartments

When Community Heritage Senior Apartments opened in June 2000, it became the first and only HUD 202 senior housing facility in North Richmond. The development offers 51 one-bedroom units. Residents have very low-incomes and range in age from 62 to 90+ years old; many had already lived in North Richmond for many years before moving to the development.

Community Heritage is beautifully landscaped and offers a community fruit and vegetable garden, kitchen, library, computer room and two common rooms that can be used for parties and community gatherings. A property manager, service coordinator and maintenance staff are located on-site. Residents have formed a tenants association, a quilting club and a neighborhood watch group. The service coordinator leads holiday gatherings as well as field trips to cultural events, shopping centers and banks in a van provided by Eden Housing Corporation.

CHDC developed Community Heritage in partnership with Eden Housing Corporation, the Contra Costa County Redevelopment Agency, and the City of Richmond.
