The property was aquired in 1980 and transformed it into 230 apartments for low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities. Named after a majestic red oak tree on-site, the Red Oak offers on-site social services and houses an Older Adult Center, embodying WSFSSH’s dedication to supporting the older adult population.
