Affordable Assisted Living Dedicated in Silver Spring

October 20, 2006

Archbishop of Washington Donald W. Wuerl dedicated Grace House, the newest assisted living residence to be developed by the Archdiocese’s affordable housing agency, Victory Housing, on October 17. He was joined by local and state officials and the president of Victory Housing, Jim Brown.

Grace House includes 32 apartments for low- and moderate-income frail senior citizens as well as amenities that include beautiful common areas, meals, a wellness center and personal care assistance. The residence is located at 3214 Norbeck Road, Silver Spring, MD 20906, near Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church.

Financing for the $5.6 million development included a $2.8 million low-cost loan from Montgomery County, a $2.1 million loan from United Bank, a land donation worth $640,000 from Victory Housing and a grant of $50,000 from the Maryland Affordable Housing Trust.

Victory Housing operates a total of 17 communities in Maryland and the District of Columbia, which provide affordable housing for seniors and families through public-private partnerships. For more information about Grace House and other Victory Housing communities, please visit
