A feature-filled affordable housing complex built and run by the Cesar Chavez Foundation was unveiled to the public Friday.
The three-story, 49-unit complex on East California Avenue is for low- and very low-income seniors. It's named Casa de Eva for Eva Camacho, a community and political activist who worked for a time with Cesar Chavez in the United Farm Workers union and died of cancer last year at age 43.
The h6ousing complex sits on 2 acres adjacent to a 150-unit multi-family apartment complex also built and managed by the Chavez Foundation.
It features 48 one-bedroom units and a two-bedroom one for management staff. The units have kitchens and central heat and air and technology for calling emergency services.
There are open spaces including for a library, lounge and exercise room. And as at other Chavez senior communities, there will be classes, events, clubs, trips and other activities offered there.
Casa de Eva is one of more than 30 affordable housing communities totaling more than 4,300 units in four states constructed or renovated -- and managed by -- the Chavez Foundation, it said.
There's already a waiting list of people wanting to apply to move into the Casa de Eva complex, which will ask people to pay no more than 30 percent of their income. People who want to inquire about applying for a unit can call 864-1108.
