Housing Corporation

(This video is subtitled.)

Inglis Housing Corporation provides affordable, accessible housing, allowing people with physical disabilities to live their lives independently and to the fullest. Our housing communities are staffed by compassionate housing professionals.

With nearly 40 years of experience developing affordable, wheelchair-accessible housing throughout the greater Philadelphia Region, Inglis Housing Corporation is committed to meeting the needs of people with physical disabilities.

We provide affordable housing to eligible applicants. We are not permitted to discriminate against applicants or residents on the basis of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, handicap or disability, or familial status. In addition, we have a legal requirement to provide ‘reasonable accommodations’ to applicants and residents if they or any family members have a physical challenge.”

Our tenants benefit from our expertise in accessibility. In fact, all of our more than 200 housing units exceed accessibility guidelines outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act. Inglis Housing typically spends 6% of its construction budget on accessibility features, compared to 2% spent by others in the affordable, accessible housing industry.

Inglis supports the concept of visitability — the belief that including basic architectural access features in all new homes is a civil and human right. Visitability is not just for people with physical disabilities — it’s for anyone whose mobility may be impaired now or in the future.

By 2020, there will be 53.7 million Americans over 65 and 6.8 million over 85.
By 2050, there will be 82 million Americans over 65 and 19.4 million over 85.

The Future of the Disability Housing Market Conference was held in 2011, jointly sponsored by Inglis, the Federal Reserve Bank and the Disability Opportunity Fund. The Conference brought together professionals in the community development and disability sectors seeking state-of-the-art tools and approaches to raise capital and develop housing for people with disabilities, to address this critical need in the Greater Philadelphia Region.

Tenants also benefit financially from Inglis Housing's partnerships with the Philadelphia Housing Authority for rental subsidies, reducing their rent to 30% of their income.

To provide affordable, accessible independent living opportunities, Inglis Housing Corporation partners with other developers such as 1260 Housing Development Corporation, Diamond and Associates, Regan Development Corporation, Pennrose Properties and many more quality developers.

Our latest project, Inglis Gardens at Belmont opened this summer  - check out our news coverage here!.  These 80 new safe, accessible, affordable apartments in an integrated community sit on the 3.8 acres next to Inglis House (formerly the Carlene Apartments), at 2560-2564 Belmont Avenue. Forty units in the two building complex are what Inglis refers to as Accessibility-Plus units, meaning they exceed the standard design specs for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (such as 40in doorways instead of the ADA compliant 36” to accommodate larger motorized wheelchairs).
