 Providing a safe, affordable place for Columbus senior citizens to call home. The Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority came together Tuesday with state and county leaders to celebrate the opening of McKinley Manor in Franklinton.

The $14 million project is a 44-unit affordable housing community that will serve low- and fixed-income renters over the age of 55.

The public-private project has received funding and investment support from the City of Columbus, Franklin County, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, Marble Cliff Capital, Park National Bank and the Affordable Housing Trust for Columbus and Franklin County.

"It's a game changer, a life changer," tenant Sean Butler told ABC 6. "I'm very well pleased and feel fortunate to be a partaker of this part of the American dream, affordable housing."

Leaders with CMHA said the Franklinton neighborhood where McKinley Manor is located has a high concentration of vulnerable senior citizens facing housing cost burdens and chronic health issues. They believe the complex will provide a quality home where many can live independently.
