Residential Program

Independence Center is a leader in designing affordable and attractive residential and independent housing communities for its members. Each apartment building owned and operated by Independence Center 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. Additionally, members are encouraged to decorate their apartment to reflect their own personal tastes and style.
