True Vine Senior Apartments

Low-income Housing for Active Seniors

True Vine Senior Center is one of three nonprofit organizations within the Barbara Jean Brown Foundation. Barbara understood the resilience and resourcefulness needed to overcome poverty and she worked to create equitable spaces for marginalized people to have a voice and exercise self-determination.

Barbara and Leo purchased the 23-unit apartment complex in 1981. Originally intended to provide low-income housing for both senior citizens and people with disabilities, True Vine now focuses exclusively on elders (62+).
