Low-income housing unit helping Phoenix fight homelessness

PHOENIX — City leaders are slowly chipping away at homelessness and a new housing unit will help in their fight.

“It’s so great that our mayor, who’s working with all of these non-profits, is putting an end to homelessness with our veterans,” said Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski.”Now, it’s time to make sure every senior has a place to live.”

The Cesar Chavez Foundation partnered with the city to build and dedicate Paseo Abeytia, a state-of-the-art, 46-unit affordable housing community for low-income seniors.

Named for the Abeytia Family, longtime community activists with close ties to the Cesar Chavez farm worker movement, the housing community consists of one-and-two bedroom units featuring the latest in amenities. The smoke-free community features a library, a lounge area, a trail-like setting with exercise stations outside and medical staff is always nearby.

Residents will pay rent equivalent to no more than 30 percent of their income.
