The Brigadier General Hazel Johnson Brown Veterans Center has now opened in the Sharswood neighborhood of North Philadelphia. The Art Deco building, formerly known as the General John F. Reynolds School, was adapted by HELP USA into 55 apartments for low-income seniors, including a set number for homeless veterans. The historic school was designed in 1926 by architect Irwin T. Catharine. The school’s wide corridors were retained during the rehabilitation, and the classrooms lit by large windows were transformed into modern apartments. Heritage successfully secured federal historic tax credits for this exciting conversion.
