Affordable Santa Maria senior housing project begins in March
SANTA MARIA, Calif. - Construction for a Santa Maria senior housing project begins next month. The 40-unit Sierra Madre Cottage near Bethel Lutheran Church is expected to open its doors in late 2020.
People's Self-Help Housing Corp. is developing the complex on the vacant lot by Sierra Madre Avenue and South East Avenue. "The seniors that we usually try to help are many times on disability," explained the organization's vice president, Ken Trigueiro. "They might not make much than $10,000 [a year], or so."
