Baltimore Answers Skilled-Nursing Care Shortage With Groundbreaking Green House Project at Stadium Place
April 18, 2012
With a looming shortage in long-term care options in poor neighborhoods around the U.S., Baltimore is leading the way with the opening of The Green House® Residences at Stadium Place on April 19, 2012, which will provide the area's low-income seniors with a radically different, skilled-nursing home on the site of the former Memorial Stadium.
Stadium Place, developed by Govans Ecumenical Development Corporation (GEDCO), is the first certified Green House project in the state of Maryland. It is also the first in the nation to take advantage of special financing for Green House projects aimed at low-income elders under a joint initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and NCB Capital Impact. This project received significant additional support from The Harry and Janette Weinberg Foundation, the state, the City of Baltimore, and private donors.
