“We know one thing is for certain, what brings residents to Northfield Apartments is their Caldwell connection,” says Dawn Stevenson, Northfield property manager and site supervisor for Futures Unlimited Inc., the property’s owner and manager. “Ties to this area continue to be our biggest selling point,” Stevenson remarks.
Constructed in 1994 as an income-based HUD project for qualifying individuals, Northfield Apartments offers 20 one-bedroom ground-level apartments situated around a clubhouse at 400 W Avenue E in Caldwell on an inviting 27-acre setting. Individuals experiencing an ongoing physical or other disability and in need of affordable housing are invited to apply.
Stevenson, who has served in her current capacity for the past 15 years, feels Northfield offers a camaraderie among the residents not easily found in more traditional apartment settings in other communities. “Having a clubhouse for folks to gather or pop in gives us all an opportunity to get to know one another better,” says Stevenson, whose office is staffed during most daytime hours, seven days per week. “While we are often here in the capacity of Futures Unlimited’s support service,” Stevenson continues, “this living situation allows us to be accessible to all residents, even outside of office hours.”
Dawn is joined by two other staff members and lifelong Caldwell residents, Dana Dick and Kari Dvorak. “I have really enjoyed the relationships I’ve developed working out here,” says Dick. “I’ve made lots of new friends. It’s one of the main reasons I enjoy what I do at Northfield. It’s a positive, welcoming environment here.”
