Presby’s Inspired Life is a nonprofit organization that provides services to seniors well beyond safe and secure housing. The philosophy of care is to nourish the body, mind and spirit so residents may live life in all its fullness while receiving the necessary support. Presby’s Inspired Life has served the elderly in the Philadelphia area for over sixty-two years and has a long standing reputation for excellence in affordable housing and services for economically disadvantaged seniors.

Riverside Presbyterian Apartments opened in 1982, marking the beginning of the Presby’s Inspired Life Affordable Housing Ministry and the beginning of its partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA). Today, Presby’s provides affordable housing to over 2,300 residents at 34 communities located throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. Presby’s Inspired Life has evolved into a regional leader in developing, sponsoring, and managing apartment communities for seniors of limited financial means. Presby’s reputation for excellence in affordable housing for seniors remains the catalyst for other housing developers to seek out our expertise in managing their communities.
