About The Shelter Group





The Shelter Group is a national real estate development and property management company specializing in multi-family and senior living communities.  From its founding in 1977, Shelter has grown into a top-ranked development and property management company.  Shelter's Park View brand of senior living communities has been nationally recognized as a model for affordable housing for active seniors.  With typical amenities such as fitness and computer rooms, a library, and activity center in each community, Park View residents benefit from modern convenience combined with the assistance of a caring community of individuals. 

Park View Communities

Shelter's Park View communities were begun in 1989 to serve seniors whose income is too high to permit government assistance but too low to support entry into many conventional retirement centers. Typically, Park View communities comprise 100 apartment homes in a three-story, mid-rise building and serve people whose income is less than 60% of median income within the region.

Quality of life, affordability, and comprehensive resident services are hallmarks of Shelter senior apartment communities. We foster social interaction as well as emotional and spiritual well being, believing that our obligation to residents includes more than simply providing attractive, well maintained, comfortable housing.

Shelter is able to keep rents within the reach of our residents while offering a physical environment, amenities, and services to equal those provided in far more costly apartment communities. In addition, we help coordinate residents' connections to agencies that provide services (for example, nutrition counselors, social workers, visiting nurses, and transportation) but do not require an out-of-pocket expenditure. 

Upgrades Abound

At Park View, an active lifestyle is just the beginning.  For example, residents of our Park View communities enjoy spacious, light-filled apartment homes that feature fully-equipped kitchens, full baths complete with grab bars, wiring for cable television, telephone and high-speed Internet, individually controlled heating and air conditioning and window treatments.  Amenities abound at these new buildings include a wellness center, beauty and barber services, media room, and library and laundry room. 

A Commitment to Quality

At Shelter, our commitment to quality is reflected in our Park View communities and with more than 22 communities across the state, thousands of Maryland seniors are enjoying the Park View lifestyle.  Residents can expect an environment of beautifully landscaped grounds, video-monitored lobby and hallways, and recreational and social benefits that go beyond the average senior living community.  Park View residents have the safety and comfort of their own homes, while also enjoying the cooperative spirit of a friendly neighborhood atmosphere.
