At Clairvaux Commons, the residents enjoy a beautiful view of downtown Indiana, PA. People have come hundreds of miles – from California and Arizona – to find a home in Indiana and place their roots in Clairvaux Commons.
Opened in May 1984, the 85-unit complex consists of 64 one-bedroom apartments and 21 efficiencies. It was the first Christian Housing high-rise outside of Allegheny County.
The facility offers two elevators, full-time maintenance personnel and several large rooms for social gathering (such as a library/meeting room, a sitting room and an exercise room). The community room features a complete kitchen and enclosed patio area. The residents plant and cultivate a small garden and flowers around the building during the summer months.
If there is one word that describes Clairvaux Commons, it is togetherness. An active Social Committee brings residents together to participate in various events. Evening activities often include cards, Bingo, chatting, and board games. In addition, residents plan and prepare group dinners, cookouts, socials, movies, outings, and trips throughout the year.
A typical one-bedroom apartment includes a kitchen, living-dining room, bedroom and full bath, plus plenty of cupboard space for storage. Each unit is equipped with central air and heat, wall-to-wall carpet, Philips Emergency Lifeline and a security front door system. The bedroom and living rooms feature beautiful wide windows for plenty of natural light.
The building is situated on a main bus route that can take tenants downtown, to doctor’s offices, and shopping malls. There is a shopping shuttle to the supermarket provided by the local transportation company on a weekly basis. Assistance is available for rent rebate or health-related services. Staff and medical personnel from the Visiting Nurses Association, the Aging Services, Accessibilities, Caring Hearts, and Helping Hands regularly visit the residents.
