May 28, 2024 — Volunteers of America National Services is excited to announce the grand opening of a new affordable senior housing development to expand the inventory of quality, affordable housing options in greater Minneapolis-St. Paul. Nolte River Place, developed by VOANS, will celebrate its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 6, at 3011 5th Ave., Anoka, Minn.

“At Volunteers of America, we believe seniors deserve to live their golden years with dignity, purpose and security. Nolte River Place reflects our unwavering commitment to providing high-quality, affordable housing options for our aging population,” said David Nisivoccia, VOANS executive vice president and COO. This new community will offer residents not just a place to live, but a vibrant environment that fosters connection, well-being and independence.”

The 80-unit community provides one- and two-bedroom units, eight units for formerly unhoused senior veterans, and 10 designated units for Project Rental Assistance Contracts (PRAC) vouchers. Additionally, the on-site amenities include a community room, exercise room, underground parking, hair salon, and library. Nolte River Place is also in close proximity to the Rum River Trail, Northstar Line commuter rail and downtown Anoka.

“We are thrilled to complete this successful development,” said Jon Clevenger, VOANS vice president of development. “From start to finish, we envisioned a site on the corner of the Homestead at Anoka with a continuum of safe, comfortable housing for a community of individuals with different incomes and ability levels.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony will include brief remarks from Volunteers of America President and CEO Mike King; VOANS Executive Vice President and COO David Nisivoccia; VOA Minnesota and Wisconsin President Julie Manworren; and Minnesota Housing Assistant Commissioner James Lehnhoff.
