To whom it may concern:
The Salvation Army gets frequent phone calls and emails (see below) regarding several of our group homes for developmentally/intellectually disabled persons. Because HUD originally paid for renovating the properties, we are on the HUD list for "affordable housing for the disabled". Unfortunately, these are long-term housing programs, the admissions are controlled by the county IDD offices, and only open to those with severe intellectual disabilities. Typically, the developmentally disabled residents are there for decades, there is little turn-over, with long waiting lists held by the counties, and not available to the public in general.
Therefore, if there is any say you can remove these properties from your listings, that would be very helpful for us, and would save wasted time for the individuals you refer to us looking for housing.
The properties are:
1. The one below (EDGE AVENUE RESIDENCES in Bensalem, Bucks County ,PA)
2. COLLEGEVILLE COMMUNITY ARRANGEMENT, Collegeville, PA
3. SANDY BRAE SUPPORTED LIVING, Lewes DE
4. SEAFORD NEIGHBORHOOD HOME, Seaford DE
5. SPINNAKER LANE, Milton DE

Spinnaker Lane Supported Living is managed by The Salvation Army Greater Philadelphia.
Since this property was built or renovated using funding from HUD's current Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program or legacy Section 202 program, residency is usually restricted to households earning 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or less with at least one adult member with a disability. Tenants pay rent based on household income. This rent is usually the highest of the following three amounts: either 30% adjusted monthly income, or 10% unadjusted monthly income, or, if receiving welfare assistance, the housing costs portion of this assistance.
