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 vibrant public 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.
The campus is home to Advanced Living Communities that includes 60 affordable independent living units for seniors; space for Manna on Main Street to operate its soup kitchen, choice food pantry and the new North Penn Commons public café; and The PEAK Center, which offers programs to help older adults live independently and remain active. The North Penn YMCA is also 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.
