Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. joined local officials and developers to cut the ribbon on Whitman Manor, an affordable senior rental residence in Laurel Springs. Now completed, the $1.8 million project brings 12 affordable units to Camden County seniors.
“The Freeholder Board is proud to have been a partner in this development, expanding the stock of quality, affordable housing for Camden County seniors,” Cappelli said. “The senior population across the United States is rapidly growing, and too many of those seniors lack housing that is accessible, affordable, and centrally located to the health and other services that they need. This development, located just blocks away from Jefferson Hospital and Rowan University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine, will be a boon for the well-being of the residents that call Whitman Manor home.”
Whitman Manor was developed by Laurel Whitman Urban Renewal and Richard DePetro, and was financed in part with grants awarded by the Camden County Board of Freeholders.
