Ribbon Cutting for New Senior Housing in Brewer 

There’s a new place for low income seniors to live in Brewer. Chamberlain Place Senior Housing is a 32-unit housing complex. Friday, seniors celebrated that grand opening with an open house and ribbon cutting. The project was developed by Penquis Housing. Maine has the oldest population in the US, making senior housing a vital part of communities. ” We’ve had more seniors living longer, they’re staying in their homes longer, they’re not able to afford their homes so they need affordable housing,” said Gordon Stitham, executive director of the Brewer Housing Authority. ” This is excellent. It’s beautiful, it’s elegant, it’s friendly,” said Deanna Doane, who hopes to live in one of the units. The Brewer Housing Authority is accepting applications now. There are one and two bedroom apartments in the complex.
