For more than four decades, Mennonite Housing has provided affordable housing for families and senior citizens with low incomes. We offer apartments for seniors and apartments for low income families in Kansas including Wichita and surrounding areas, including Andover, Benton, Clearwater, Coffeyville, Derby, Newton, and Valley Center.
The search for affordable housing is difficult for many families who have lower incomes and for seniors who are on fixed incomes. According to the Pew Research Center, the average rent has risen 18% over the last five years, outpacing inflation. The most recent Census data shows that 46% of American renters spend 30% or more (some up to 50%) of their income on housing.
