Cleveland, September 7, 2023 – The McGregor Foundation (McGregor) and CHN Housing Partners (CHN) today were joined by Cuyahoga County Council, Cheryl Stephens and other leaders to celebrate the grand opening of McGregor Independent Living, an initiative that will preserve 26 and create 80 new units of affordable housing on McGregor’s East Cleveland campus.
“For more than 15 years, McGregor has been working to provide more affordable living options for older adults in our community. Today, in Cuyahoga County, we know that 1 in 3 older adults live near or below the poverty line which makes the need for safe, affordable living options critical to their ability to cover the cost of basic needs. That is why McGregor is determined to improve the access of affordable options through advocacy and additional housing development with partnerships like this one to make it a reality,” said Ann Conn, president and chief executive officer of McGregor.
