One of Consecra’s Florida communities has experienced a 50% savings on electric costs for the building and better flood control due to permiable pavers. The dual flush toilets, new faucets and tankless water heaters have significantly reduced the amount of water used and the cost of heating water. New lighting has reduced the cost of illuminating halls and common areas.
Many of Consecra’s residents have experienced dramatic cost reductions for heating and air conditioning. Every dollar a resident saves on utilities is a dollar that may put toward food or medicine.
Holding a national reputation for quality communities, Consecra is known as a leader in owning and managing the very best in affordable housing. Consecra housing communities offer residents a place to live safely and affordably, while nurturing their spiritual and social needs. Our housing communities are built in neighborhoods where the residents have access to family, friends, medical care and shopping. The facilities are designed by a team of professionals that are well versed in ADA laws and are committed to providing accessible apartments that respond to the unique needs of the populations we serve.
Each community has its own team of professionals designated specifically to that facility. These caring staff members receive support from a corporate housing team dedicated high quality services.
Each housing community offers common areas for resident parties and socializing; laundry facilities; library; computer lab with access to “user-friendly” computers; exercise classes, “mind fitness” activities and opportunities for diverse spiritual worship.
Consecra works with community service providers to provide health screenings, dietary classes, support services and cultural opportunities for the residents. The communities have a commitment to social accountability and welcome the larger community for elections, nutrition, college classes, and health and wellness clinics.
