Alumni and friends of the former Saint Joseph Parish Elementary School and faithful with a connection to Saint Joseph Parish are invited to view the transformation that made Saint Joseph Place possible. The development involved the substantial rehabilitation of the historic former Saint Joseph Parish Elementary School and its Annex building as well as the construction of a new addition to unify the two buildings.
The unified building consists of 50 one-bedroom apartments for income eligible seniors ages 62 and older. Features of the building include a community room, food cupboard, laundry facilities, resident lounges, and on-site social services to assist residents as they age in place within their community.
