After Nazareth College merged and became Spalding University in 1971, several buildings on the Campus of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth were available to serve other needs. Aware of the increasing numbers of elderly persons in our society with special housing needs, the Sisters responded and entered the housing ministry by opening Nazareth Village I in 1979. One resident says of the villages, "I have made mistakes in my life … but choosing to move to Nazareth Villages surely wasn't one of them. I love it here. Nazareth is my home and I can't imagine living anywhere else."
Our mission is to provide safe, comfortable and affordable apartments in a Christian community setting for low-to-middle income elderly and disabled persons. Support services carried out in a Christ-like spirit of compassion will facilitate both independence and community among residents.
- Nazareth Village I offers 101 apartments with HUD Section 8, rent subsidy.
- Nazareth Village II offers 45 apartments, affordable rates, and rent subsidy for those who meet certain criteria.
- Nazareth Villages provide independent apartment living in a safe and supportive environment - a place where one can truly feel at home.
