Retirement Housing Foundation Celebrates Renovation of Texas Affordable Senior Housing Community

The ribbon-cutting at Pecan Place.

November 8 was a special day in Bonham, Texas, as Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF) and the Bonham community celebrated the re-dedication of Pecan Place, an affordable housing community for older adults. The re-dedication followed a $1.6 million renovation project.

The event featured Bonham Mayor H.L. Compton and a representative from the office of U.S. Congressman Pat Fallon (R-Texas). The program also included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a message from Stuart Hartman, president and CEO of Retirement Housing Foundation, Pecan Place’s parent organization.

Pecan Place, a HUD 202 community for older adults originally built in 1990, has 40 spacious, one-bedroom and studio cottage-style apartments. Each apartment includes a full kitchen, living/dining area, and full bathroom. Pecan Place is one of 17 RHF communities in Texas.

The renovation project at Pecan Place included structural work, administration, and common area improvements. Extensive updates also were done to individual units, including like-new bathroom and kitchen plumbing fixtures, plus new paint, appliances, cabinets and countertops, light fixtures, and windows. Additionally, the RHF Charitable Foundation gave a $25,000 grant to Pecan Place to pay for new furniture in the community room and a portion of the landscaping.
