Most senior housing complexes rent apartments to people age 62 and older and/or younger people who have permanent disabilities. However, some also rent apartments to younger people who do not have disabilities and/or families.
The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency has an Apartment Locator in which you can plug in our county to see what apartments are currently open and the rental cost.
