For the fourth consecutive year, EPIC invests in Mercy Housing as their charity of choice

WASHINGTON – (RealEstateRama) — The National Real Estate Practice of EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants announced the contribution of over $40,000 to the Chamblee Senior Residences to enhance the community kitchen and offer healthy cooking demonstration classes for residents.

“We are honored and thankful for EPIC’s generous support to Mercy Housing,” said Jane Graf, President and CEO of Mercy Housing. Providing a healthy, safe and vibrant community for seniors is key to our mission.”

“During our four-year relationship with Mercy Housing, we have visited a number of their properties and have seen the dramatic impact that a stable and caring environment can have on individuals and families,” Jonathan Griffiths, managing principal of EPIC’s National Real Estate Practice. “As our country tries to address an acute shortage of affordable housing, Mercy Housing operations should be applauded.”

Since 2015, EPIC has raised more than $140,000 for Mercy Housing initiatives. In past years, EPIC’s support has enabled the expansion of summer and after-school youth programming and security system upgrades and Mercy Housing properties in Colorado, California and Illinois.

Chamblee Senior Residences was built 10 years ago and is comprised of 65 affordable apartments for seniors aged 62 years and older. Located in the heart of Chamblee, GA, a suburb of Atlanta, the community is conveniently located across from the Chamblee MARTA station in a transit-oriented district close to many conveniences. A Walmart Superstore, with pharmacy and supermarket and other amenities, including restaurants, retail, post office and banks, are a short walk. Mercy Care, a Federally Qualified Health Center, is located less than two blocks from the site and provides a full range of health and wellness services to low income families and seniors. Chamblee Senior Residences is Mercy Housing’s first project to advance Mercy Housing’s commitment to the integration of health and housing.
