Description: 

Menorah Housing Foundation (MHF) was established in 1969 by the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles to develop and manage affordable independent-living senior apartment units for low-income seniors, ages 62 years or older. MHF has developed and manages more than 1,025 apartment units in 15 buildings throughout Los Angeles County and provides tenants with low cost social, educational and recreational services. Demand for MHF apartment units far exceeds the supply, and the wait list often ranges from three to 10 years.
