Centennial Village is a non-profit organization, which was established in 1978 to provide gracious and affordable living for the elderly (62 and above) and the mobility impaired. Centennial Village contracts with HUD, which provides subsidies for each apartment under Section 202/8. Rent at Centennial Village is based upon 30% of your adjusted gross income. Basic utilities are included in the monthly rent. Cable, telephone and internet are not included.
Our community consists of 153 one-bedroom/one-bathroom units, located in three buildings on eight acres in central Mesa. There are three floors in each of our apartment buildings, with each floor consisting of seventeen apartments, a laundry room, elevator, central patio, and lobby. All units have a maximum occupancy of 2 persons. Our central courtyard holds a Ramada, a swimming pool and an outdoor patio. Centennial’s community building holds a library, card room, and meeting hall.
Centennial Village is a smoke-free community. There is no smoking allowed anywhere on campus. Absolutely no smoking is permitted in individual apartments.
Centennial Village offers two waitlists; a waitlist for our Standard units and a separate waitlist list for our Mobility Impaired units. Currently from the time a Pre-Application for Waitlist is received and approved, to the time an apartment becomes available is 12-18 months. Please keep your contact information up to date while you are on our waiting list either by contacting the office or filling out the web form on our website. It is your responsibility to maintain up to date information. If Centennial Village staff cannot reach you when an apartment is available, you will be removed from the waitlist.
Centennial Village does not have a model apartment, and we do not schedule viewings of our apartments. You will have an opportunity to see the apartment being offered to you when you reach the top of either waitlist. In the meantime, please visit our website, www.centennialvillage.org, to see photos of our apartments from some of our current residents.
HUD guidelines dictate how we process applicants, and the first apartment available is assigned to the top applicant on our waitlist. We cannot accommodate requests for specific floors or apartments.
Centennial Village does not provide supportive services such as caregivers, meals, housekeeping, or transportation. Staffing is administrative in nature and only available by appointment during weekday business hours. Apartment call buttons are centrally monitored and are responded to by the Mesa Fire Department, for emergency medical response requests only.
There are no fees associated with applying to either waitlist and any website requesting a fee in order to apply is not legitimate and not related to Centennial Village.
