The Volunteers of America Delaware Valley held a ribbon-cutting for the organization’s newest affordable housing community, located in Mount Laurel.
Centerton Village is a 103-unit community located at Centerton Road and Marne Highway, including two, four-story buildings plus amenities including community rooms and a playground. Several units are designated specifically for homeless veterans, and the community will offer social services for veteran residents. Likewise, all tenants will have access to a resources counselor who will assist in community workshops and events for residents.
“Today, we are proud to celebrate the completion of Centerton Village, our newest affordable housing community, located in the heart of Mount Laurel,” VOADV CEO and President Daniel L. Lombardo said in a prepared statement. “Centerton Village provides families and individuals all the benefits of living in a supportive community setting, with the added convenience of being within walking distance to a variety of local businesses, entertainment and health services.”
VOADV provides housing services through a variety of rental communities in the region, serving individuals including seniors, veterans, low-income populations and others.
“We are pleased to have these modern and affordable apartments available for Mount Laurel residents, especially for our veteran community,” Mayor Stephen Steglik said in a statement. “I want to thank the VOADV for their work on this project and for the countless resources they provide throughout South Jersey.”
Centerton Village was financed through the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, Enterprise, Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, Fulton Bank, TD Bank, TD Foundation, Volunteers of American National Services/Capital Magnet Funds, and Mount Laurel Affordable Housing.
