Mountlake Senior Living Apartments now open


    Construction crews have been replaced by movers as the 96-unit Mountlake Senior Living Apartments opened earlier this month in Mountlake Terrace.

    The senior living community at 5525 244th St. SW. is the newest operated by the Senior Housing Assistance Group (SHAG), a non-profit organization that operates rental apartments for low- and moderate-income seniors in Western Washington.

    1. Just because SHAG doesn’t accept Section 8 doesn’t mean they aren’t low income. Section 8 is just a program that often helps those with low income, but remember not everyone who is low income qualifies or is approved for Section 8. Even people who do qualify find it difficult as there are often wait lists and limited vouchers to give away.
