- Jan 25, 2016
San Antonio—Among the attendees at the grand opening of the George Gervin Retirement Apartments were Congressman Joaquin Castro, Representative Justin Rodriguez, and representatives from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas, Broadway Bank, and the George Gervin Youth Center. The gathering celebrated the completion of the apartment community that’s designed for low-income seniors, disabled, and homeless population.
George Gervin Retirement Apartments is a $7 million project funded in part by a $500,000 Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grant from FHLB Dallas and Broadway Bank, with the rest of the funds coming from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. “The grant was vital because we want to enhance the life experience of our seniors,” Ms. Gervin-Hawkins said in prepared remarks. “This grant allowed us to provide a higher quality of life for the senior population of San Antonio.”
“This new facility is evidence of our commitment to helping the vulnerable population of San Antonio,” stated Congressman Castro. “I applaud the Federal Home Loan Bank of Dallas, Broadway Bank, and George Gervin Youth Center for being a part of this community-driven initiative to help make affordable housing available to our seniors.”
This is the second major project that Broadway Bank, in partnership with the FHLB Dallas, has helped fund for George Gervin Youth Center. “The George Gervin Youth Center team has undertaken some critical projects to help both the youth and seniors in our community — always as good stewards of the funding they receive from FHLB Dallas,” said Randy Rouse, CIO Broadway Bank. “As a sponsoring FHLB Dallas member, Broadway Bank is pleased to have been able to support the youth center again, confident that the George Gervin Retirement Apartments project would be completed successfully and serving our community well.”
The community is located at 7527 Mainland Drive, San Antonio. Amenities include wider doors, lower cabinets and stove knobs, and expanded parking.
