The North Penn Commons campus is located at 606-608 E. Main Street next to the North Penn YMCA. North Penn Commons is a vibrant public center for every generation to live, learn, volunteer and thrive together – socially, physically, intellectually and spiritually. It is a partnership between four highly respected nonprofit organizations to create a center dedicated to celebrating the dignity of every member of our community. At North Penn Commons, our community members have easy access to programs, services and facilities that foster inter-generational connections and promote the health and wellness of every member of the North Penn community.
At North Penn Commons, Advanced Living offers 60 affordable independent living units for seniors with age and income qualifications for residency. You must be at least 62 years old and your present income must fall within one of the set income categories.
The campus is home not only to the Advanced Living portion of North Penn Commons, but is also a space for Manna on Main Street to operate its soup kitchen, choice food pantry and the Common Grounds Café, and is also the location of The PEAK Center, which offers programs to help older adults live independently and remain active. The campus also adjoins the North Penn YMCA which has been upgraded and expanded to house a zero-entry family pool, a six-lane multi-purpose pool, new locker rooms, and modern program spaces.
North Penn Commons was selected by a jury of affordable housing professionals for an award under the “Innovation in Design” category and is considered a national model in the affordable housing industry.
