El Palmar Apartments
 



 

 

 

 

 

Family Housing

Avenal is a farming town in California’s central valley that lies a few miles west of Interstate 5. The roads are lined with onion, lettuce, and cotton fields. There are two grocery stores, two cafes, a quaint hotel, and three gas stations in this agricultural town, and now there are 81 new apartments for the families that work on Avenal’s farms. LINC has partnered with Simpson Housing Solutions to develop El Palmar Apartments with two, three, and four bedroom rentals in a beautiful setting that includes a community center with activity rooms, a counseling and education center, computer lab with high speed internet access, laundry and kitchen facilities, as well as a manager’s office.

LINC has made quality affordable housing for California’s farm working families an important part of our work plan. Although agriculture is a leading industry in our state, decent housing for its workers is in short supply. El Palmar Apartments in Avenal has joined our new properties in Blythe, Coachella, and Palm Springs bringing our completed number of farm worker homes to 351. By harvest in 2005, we will have opened doors to new apartments in the cities of Merced and Parlier, and our expanding farm worker portfolio includes communities underway in Orange Cove, Barstow, and Corcoran bringing our total number of homes for farm working families to 796.
