Statements
Mission The mission of Lincoln Senior Housing, Inc. is to provide the residents of Hallock's Landing with decent, safe and affordable homes that provide enriched community-based services so that the residents can successfully age in place with dignity.  
Background Lincoln Senior Housing was incorporated in 2003 to partner with New Samaritan Corporation to renovate the former Derby High School and create 34 units of affordable housing for households aged sixty-two or older.  The community was designed to be accessible for all persons regardless of disability.  The community was developed with a focus on program services and support systems that enable people to live longer, more independent and creative lives.  
Impact
Lincoln Senior Housing has contracted with Elderly Housing Management to handle the day-to-day operations of the community because of  their resident-focused approach to property management.  Working in collaboration with their agent the community has implemented several initiatives to improve the quality of life for the residents.  The initiatives have included health and wellness programs, upgrades to common areas to promote accessibility for person with disabilities and social programming including programs on anti-bullying.  Additionally the site spent a significant amount of project reserves to complete repairs to the exterior brick and mortar  walls which are over 100 years old.
 
Additionally the owner and management has documented the physical needs of the building and successfully increased budget contributions to the project Reserves to address the long term capital needs as that fund is allowed to accrue.
 
The primary goal of for the next year will be seeking out community resources to fund immediate capital needs for which there are not sufficient site resources including the repair and repointing of bricks and mortar at the parapet and roof level to prevent water infiltration into the building and secure the rubber membrane roof.  The second imminent project for capital improvements is the purchase and installation of a generator which will provide emergency power to the community in the event of weather related losses.  Many of the residents in the community utilize assistive devices so the provision of continual power is critical to our population.
Needs
The five most pressing needs for Lincoln Senior Housing d/b/a/ Hallock's Landing are the following:
   1.  Exterior repairs including mortar replacement, brick repair and roof repair - $113,000
   2.  Installation of an emergency generator which will provide power to the community due to weather related losses - $60,000
   3.  Integrative computer learning center for residents - $15,000
   4.  Common area flooring - $45,000
   5.  Building accessibility upgrades - $15,000 
Board Chair Statement

One of the challenges of our times, when families units are often separated by employment and distances, is maintaining the dignity and safety of our parents and grandparents. This challenge is compounded when a family member lacks the assets or income to keep or afford market rate housing. It is in just such cases that Lincoln Senior Housing Inc. (aka Hallock's Landing) provides our senior community with an option of safe, quality, affordable congregate living. Located a half-block from the Derby Green, close to markets and amenities, Hallock's Landing's thirty-four rent-subsidized apartments are so desirable that the wait list extends out over three years. The facility is governed by a board of directors composed of community members, and managed by a professional staff from Elderly Housing Management in Hamden. Residents enjoy access to a certified Residential Services Coordinator for their social service needs. The Board and management have been challenged to counteract the environmental effect of weather on the one hundred year old exterior of the building, as well as renewal of interior furnishings on a relatively stable subsidy from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Yet, the project is a gem. Its development twelve years ago stabilized a neighborhood and continues to provide residents with an exceptional home. As one resident stated: "I was once the nurse here at Derby High School; and now I live here. Who would have ever imagined it? I am so incredibly happy."

Comments
CEO Comments Lincoln Senior Housing, Inc. d/b/a Hallock's Landing is a HUD 202 housing community for the Elderly and, as such, our budget and Reserve contributions are subject to HUD approval.  Management worked successfully with HUD to increase the deposit to Reserves to meet future needs.  The current Reserve balance is insufficient to meet current capital needs which is why we are seeking community funding.
