Affordable Senior Housing
For older adults who want to live independently at an affordable price, we offer two communities located in the heart of Andersonville: Winwood Apartments and Glenwood Apartments.
Caring for the community
like no one else
Chicago Methodist Senior Services proudly provides older adults in our community with two low-income housing options. The residences at Winwood Apartments and Glenwood Apartments are located in the heart of Andersonville, close to public transportation and steps away from our Wesley Place campus. These two communities provide seniors who still live independently with apartments at below-market rates.
Winwood Apartments is a 31-apartment, HUD-subsidized senior housing building at the corner of Glenwood Avenue and Winona Street. The building offers secure residences with modern amenities. Residents must qualify as very low income in accordance with HUD guidelines, with rent calculated to be approximately 30% of the resident’s monthly income.
Glenwood Apartments is a 13-apartment, vintage brick building at the corner of Glenwood and Winnemac Avenues. Residents must qualify as very low income in accordance with HUD guidelines, with rent calculated to be approximately 40% of the resident’s monthly income, subject to minimums and maximums.
A thriving community of trained volunteers who are building friendships with older adults through weekly visits and friendly calls.
Join a thriving community of trained volunteers who are building friendships with older adults through weekly visits and friendly calls. Volunteers are vetted, trained and supported by Senior Connections staff.
You will be personally introduced to your volunteer, and you and the volunteer together will plan visits and activities. We ask volunteers to commit to one year of volunteering with the program as relationships take time to develop and flourish. Our intent is to match you with a volunteer based on your interests and likes as well as theirs.
What we do
CMSS Senior Connections staff will initially meet with you to explain our program and to learn about you and your interests. We then carefully match older adults with a vetted and trained volunteer visitor or caller.
Our volunteers are of all ages and backgrounds. Many have compelling personal histories, and all have a desire to meet someone new.
Where you receive services
You and your friendly visitor volunteer can meet in your home, a park, or anywhere where you both would feel comfortable. Instead of an in-person visit, our friendly caller volunteer would call you, typically at home, at a mutually agreed upon time.
Why is Senior Connections so important?
• We believe that building friendships across generations strengthens the caring fabric of the community.
• We uphold that every person has something of value to offer and that their experiences, skills and interests can have a significant impact on the lives
• of others.
• We know that engagement in community and relationships, at any age, promote wellness, vitality and an enhanced quality of life.
• We welcome diversity and invite people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life to participate in Senior Connections.
