North Penn Commons Opens
North Penn Commons opens to the public in October 2016. The Commons is a vibrant public center for every generation to live, learn, volunteer and thrive together – socially, physically, intellectually and spiritually. It is a partnership between four highly respected nonprofit organizations to create a vibrant public center dedicated to celebrating the dignity of every member of our community.
The campus is home to Advanced Living Communities that includes 60 affordable independent living units for seniors; a larger, upgraded space for Manna on Main Street to operate its soup kitchen, choice food pantry and the new Common Grounds Café; and The PEAK Center, which offers programs to help older adults live independently and remain active. The North Penn YMCA also upgraded and expanded to house a zero-entry family pool, a six-lane multi-purpose pool, new locker rooms, and modern program spaces.
