Mayor Bowser to Celebrate Opening of Genesis, an Affordable Intergenerational Housing Community

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

(Washington, DC) – On Thursday, November 19th at 11:00 a.m., Mayor Muriel Bowser and senior members of her Administration, along with partners at Mi Casa, Inc. and Generations of Hope will “welcome home” residents of Genesis, an affordable intergenerational housing community in which service-minded seniors and young families transitioning out of foster care and their children live as neighbors. Based on an award-winning model, Genesis is a 27-unit affordable building where residents mutually support one another by meeting specific requirements for community participation and service.
