B'nai B'rith is the largest Jewish sponsor of federally subsidized housing for the elderly in the United States.
We launched our senior housing program in 1968, and since 1971, in a cooperative partnership with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, B'nai B'rith has made rental apartments available for senior citizens with limited incomes. B'nai B'rith senior housing is open to all qualified individuals as defined by HUD, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, handicap or national origin.
The B'nai B'rith Senior Housing Network in the United States consists of 42 buildings in 26 communities, encompassing more than 4,000 apartment units and serving more than 8,000 people.
B'nai B'rith has also developed a variety of housing alternatives around the globe. The organization sponsors "parents' homes" in Australia, New Zealand, and Israel; senior citizens "flatlets" in England; an apartment building and a medical residence in Vancouver, British Columbia; and apartment buildings in Toronto. Although funded through their own national programs and tailored to meet the particular needs of the host country, these programs remain a vital component of the international B'nai B'rith Senior Housing Network.
Local B'nai B'rith volunteers and the senior service staff in the national office plan and complete all B'nai B'rith senior housing projects.
