Nonprofit dedicates new Daniel Island housing development

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A foundation that develops affordable housing complexes is dedicating a new project for senior citizens in Charleston.

Officials gather on Wednesday to dedicate the Humanity Foundation's Seven Farms Village, a 42-unit affordable community on Daniel Island. The new development is near the existing Seven Farms Apartments, also from the nonprofit developer based in Charleston.

During the past 18 years, the foundation has built more than 1,200 apartment units to meet the growing demand for affordable housing.

The foundation estimates the developments have meant more than $125 million in new construction for South Carolina and Virginia.
