HISTORY

Affordable housing for local low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities for more than 40 years …

Naperville Elderly Homes has served as a much-needed source of affordable housing for local low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities for more than 40 years. After breaking ground in 1971, The Martin Avenue Apartments welcomed its first residents in 1973, and it reached 100% occupancy within its first three months. Since then, thousands of Naperville residents have proudly called The Martin Avenue Apartments home.

“All of us at Martin Avenue Apartments are so proud of the 40 years of commitment to the senior citizens’ community of Naperville. We have been a place to call home for so many local seniors, and we’re so glad to celebrate the occasion and thank the community for its ongoing support,” said Dr. Scott Mitchell, vice-president of the board of directors. “We can’t wait to celebrate, and we hope to be a part of the Naperville community for decades to come.”
