SEASONS at Compton features 84 one- and two-bedroom apartments that will serve a blend of
limited-income seniors, seniors with developmental disabilities, or seniors who care for
dependents with developmental disabilities one of the few examples of integrating
these underserved populations. It is a thoughtful, cutting-edge community with stand-out
features to meet their unique needs.
Both populations have a lack of access to clean and safe housing, as they typically cannot
afford to live in communities such as what SEASONS will provide. Due to their reliance on
Social Security payments, their income forces them to live in neighborhoods that are often
dangerous and where specialized programming that these populations require is simply not
offered. The Association of Regional Center Agencies estimates that up to 31,000 Californians
with developmental disabilities need safe, affordable housing.
SEASONS at Compton will provide both the privacy and independence of an apartment for
developmentally disabled adults as well as the group support of their senior neighbors,
LINC staff, and professional on-site case managers. Senior residents and developmentally
disabled head of households will have a wonderful community that will help them to continue
living independently and provide a sense of security and wellbeing.
Universal and Sustainable Design principles have been incorporated throughout the community
to provide a beautiful, highly functional environment, while emphasizing energy efficiency,
use of natural light and ventilation, and small carbon footprint. The building is certified
LEED Platinum. Universal Design ensures accessibility and includes wider doorways and hallways,
adjustable height counters, lower light switches, ramps, and elevators.
