A word about the H&FA logo…

Housing is symbolized by the roofline;

Finance is symbolized by the bottom line, the ultimate financing consideration;

Associates are typified by the circle, the traditional symbol of people working together.

Westgate Tower

Wendell and Dennis open their first apartment community Westgate Tower. Together, they would develop affordable housing communities in Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan.

An H&FA Retirement Community combined individual apartments with extensive facilities for social, health maintenance, and recreational programs. Through the cooperation of the State Housing Finance Agency and the city, H&FA would enable seniors of average means to enjoy the lifestyle they deserve.
