Affordable Housing Alliance
Opens Ten Senior Units
On March 10, 2016, the Affordable Housing Alliance (AHA) cut the ribbon for Allen House in Millstone Township and welcomed its new residents.
This ten-unit senior apartment complex, housing seniors 62 and over, is fully subsidized and located on a four acre, lakeside property. The natural beauty of the surrounding area helps the project stand out.
The success of this project is due to collaboration among:
- Two Rivers Bank,
- The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development,
- The Federal Home Loan Bank of NY,
- Millstone Township,
- NeighborWorks, and
- The Affordable Housing Alliance.
AHA’s Donna Blaze welcomed the dignitaries, funders, project development team members, residents and AHA’s Board of Directors.
Speakers at the event included:
- Assemblyman Ronald Dancer
- Freeholder John P. Curley
- Jeff Sagnip, Office of Congressman Chris Smith
- Millstone Mayor Bob Kinsey
- Maria Maio-Messano, U.S. Dept. of HUD
- Beth Bentley, Federal Home Loan Bank of NY
- Jodi Quercia, Two River Community Bank

Monarch Housing Associates served as the housing consultant for Allen House. C. Rayond Davis and Son constructed the site with was designed by local architect, David Feldman.
As is the Alliance’s mission, these ten units will be affordable to very low-income individuals. This is the most recent Alliance project to be developed in Monmouth County, adding to the approximately 400 housing units in its portfolio. Allen House is the Alliance’s second sizable senior project, adding to Carver House in Neptune, NJ. This is the third partnership between the Alliance and the Township of Millstone in the last three years.
Allen House was designed with keeping fostering privacy, accessibility, and visitability to meet the physical needs of the elderly as they age in place in mind. The project is a one-story apartment building with on-site community space, and parking.
