LAKEVIEW SENIOR GARDENS
The 48-unit Lakeview Senior Gardens community, which overlooks Lake Oconee in Putnam County, Georgia, officially welcomed its first residents in February 2019! The community offers seniors quality affordable housing in one of Georgia's most desirable retirement areas. As part of this development, Paladin, Inc. is also partnering with Goodwill to provide resources and training to low-income families and seniors seeking employment in the area's robust hospitality and retail industries.
Lakeview Senior Gardens was financed through a combination of Housing Tax Credits administered and federal HOME funds administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
