Woodale Crossing


JLA is partnering with JFS-Housing (Jewish Family Services) to create Woodale Crossing which will offer housing to those with disabilities or mental illness so they may live safe, independent lives. The affordable housing development will be located next to the original Deerwood Independent & Assisted Living building. The three-story building includes 56 units with 25% reserved for households with a member who has a disability and qualifies as homeless.

All residents are offered individual, child and family counseling, psychiatric medication management, VOCA services, school-based counseling, grief counseling, as well as group therapy.

The community has been designed for LEED Silver certification.
