About Us

1000 Southern Artery is a senior citizen housing facility located in Quincy Point. 641 apartments populate three interconnected buildings. The original building and the first residents moved in during April 1966. 1000 Southern Artery is the 2nd oldest senior housing in the State, but has been maintained over the years in a way that provides safe, affordable, and attractive senior housing. 

 

Typically, 1000 Southern Artery Senior Center hosts a variety of exceptional events for our Residents and Center Members throughout the year. These activities range from day trips & overnight trips to ice cream socials to special performances by local entertainers. In the interest of keeping everyone safe & healthy, 1000 SASC is taking precautions recommended from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), by implementing procedures to prevent against the spread of COVID-19, and putting these events on hold.

 

We have currently modified the operation of the Senior Center, such as food services and classes, to reflect those recommendations.

 

As new information is received from health officials, we will continue to update and adapt our policies, as to what Management deems safe for keeping Residents and Center Members safe.

 

Please be sure to check our website for information about upcoming events once we are able to resume normal events and activities.

 

You don’t have to live here to be part of this wonderful community!
