Independence Center has two apartment buildings and two residential care facilities throughout the Metro St. Louis area. All housing facilities provide fully furnished individual units to give our members a nice, affordable place to live, receive our services, and enjoy community. We have designed and manage our residential care facilities to suit the level of care members need.
For residents who need 24-hour over-site, including medication management, meals, and transportation.
For residents who are able to manage their symptoms and handle their own care, but need an affordable place to live, a caring community, and easy access to our Clubhouse and other services.
Dignity & Respect for Every Resident
Each resident has their own apartment – no one has to share space with roommates. We encourage residents to decorate their apartment, care for it, and make it feel like home. Having a place to call your own, that you’ve set up for your own tastes, is an important part of living a quality life. Our staff ensures that each resident, regardless of the level of care needed, enjoys a nice level of comfort and privacy, and lives with dignity and respect.
Our successful housing programs have a consistent 100% occupancy rate
Safe, Affordable Housing
Independence Center is a leader in designing affordable and attractive residential and independent housing communities for its members. Each apartment building is owned and operated by Independence Center and meets code for both the local municipality as well as for HUD. This helps ensure we meet our mission of providing decent, safe and affordable housing.
