Retirement Plaza

We know it can be a challenge to find affordable housing in retirement, so GGYC built the Newell Retirement Plaza for adults age 62 and older. Our facility provides seniors a variety of on-site resources and opportunities while allowing them the comfort and security of independent living in their own residence. Take a look at some of the amenities and opportunities we have for our 48 one-bedroom apartments and six efficiency apartments.
