Elm Court was designed to serve Princeton’s low income elderly residents. It is located at 300 Elm Road in the beautiful western section of Princeton. In 1985, Elm Court opened its doors with 88 one-bedroom and studio units, 9 of which are designed for the mobility impaired.
Princeton Community Housing receives support for this project in the form of HUD 202 funds and Section 8 rental subsidies. Residents pay 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent. Activities include holiday parties, bingo, and health screenings. Some residents of Elm Court are eligible to participate in the Congregate Care Program, which provides a hot lunch in the dining room seven days each week, housekeeping services, personal care, and grocery shopping.
The recently established community garden is a joint venture between Elm Court and Harriet Bryan House. Residents of the two facilities grow vegetables and flowers in their own garden plots. Transportation to grocery stores, the hospital, the Princeton Shopping Center, Palmer Square and various churches is available on a weekly basis through the generosity of a grant from Tyco. These activities and services make Elm Court a lovely place to live.
