Seniors Unlimited Lifestyles Inc. (SULI) is a 501(C) (3) non-profit organization based in Chesapeake, Virginia. The organization specializes in providing affordable and decent housing for the low-income senior residents of the Virginia Hampton Roads area. Our goal is to provide quality housing for the elderly in a safe, secure environment. The organization will assist community services in adding an alternative to the Hampton Roads senior housing inventory.
Over the past seven years SULI has been diligently searching for a location to build a forty (40) unit senior citizen complex which will provide housing for seniors. The property at 5827 Burton Station Rd. Virginia Beach, Va. 23455 is ideal for such a development. Virginia Community Development Corporation, Richmond, Virginia is currently working with Senior’s Unlimited Lifestyles Inc., to develop the project and to provide funding through tax credit. Mr. Christopher C. Sterling, Project Development Officer is currently assisting in the progress of this venture.
In 2012, Community Housing Partners Corporation of Christianburg, Virginia partnered with Seniors Unlimited Lifestyles, Inc. to provide their construction, architectural and property management expertise in the development of Tranquility at The Lakes. The City of Virginia Beach Department of Housing and Neighborhood Preservation is also working with SULI along with Locality Support by providing Project-Based Vouchers and HOME Funds to assist in the development.
The majority of low-income senior citizens have never lived in quality housing. Due to the lack of personal funds they have had to reside in an extended living environment. Many times these individuals have been victims of exploitation and abuse. Statistics show that elder abuse more times than not occurs in their living environment. Our seniors are the foundation of our community and have paved the way for us; in return, SULI would like to make it possible for them to live out the remainder of their lives in a clean, safe, affordable environment with care and dignity.
