Elmhaven Manor: NAA’s 2022 Excellence Awards Affordable Community of the Year.


A Brief Overview:

  • 138 Apartments

  • Built in 2004

  • Senior Housing for Conventional and Affordable (LIHTC and Section 8 Voucher)

  • 7x Property Management Association of Michigan GLAStar Award Winner


Built in 2004, Elmhaven Manor in Pontiac, Mich., is finished with a brick exterior complemented by a timeless design. Lush landscaping surrounds the community, allowing residents to step out from their patios and enjoy the outdoors. Its offices are conveniently located on the first floor with the team always on standby to help. The dining area is off the firelit entry lobby, where residents have meals prepared for them by a catering company. Other amenities include a convenience store, gym, library, arts and crafts room, movie theater and lounge.

Elmhaven Manor says affordable senior housing doesn’t mean one has to give up their independence or what they expect from a community. It puts its residents first and foremost, ensuring they have a calendar packed with social activities such as bingo, trivia, arts and crafts, and more. Their Activity Coordinator creates a weekly events roster, including healthy options like yoga and walking groups. Elmhaven Manor also provides transportation for residents to local stores.

The staff is always ready to help residents with all their maintenance and service needs, including the “Haven Handyman” service for hanging shelves, assembling TV stands, installing closet organizers and rearranging furniture.

Elmhaven Manor gives back to the community in many ways, supporting organizations throughout Michigan and participating in give-back events. Every employee is given a paid day off to donate time to the charity of their choice. The community also provides annual scholarships to deserving students, one worthy resident (or child or grandchild of a resident) and one TAMC employee or employee family member.
