Harriet Bryan House, located at 310 Elm Road in Princeton, opened in 2007. It provides 67 one-bedroom apartments for very low income elderly residents. The recently completed building is two and three stories in height and takes advantage of the topography of the site. It features community rooms, a common dining room and kitchen, offices on the first floor, and two laundry rooms on each floor for the residents’ use.
The HUD Project Rental Assistance Program supplies rent subsidies. No resident’s rent exceeds 30% of his or her adjusted gross income.
Adjacent to Elm Court, Harriet Bryan House offers its residents a Congregate Care Program similar to its neighbor: a daily hot meal, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, and personal care as needed. Spacious, graciously furnished lounge areas accommodate a range of social opportunities which include bingo, parties, exercise, and other group activities.
The recently established community garden is a joint venture between Harriet Bryan House and Elm Court. 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 Harriet Bryan House a lovely place to live.
