MERRILLVILLE, IND.- U.S. Rep. Frank Mrvan (D-IN) visited the AHEPA 78 Phase VI Senior Apartments of Merrillville, Ind., May 6, 2022.
“We are thrilled to welcome Congressman Mrvan to our affordable senior living community in Merrillville,” AMC President and CEO Steve Beck said. “We applaud his commitment to creating strong and sustainable affordable housing for all, including seniors, and ensuring they have access to the quality supportive services they need to thrive. Our waitlists in Merrillville are some of the highest in our nationwide portfolio, so the need and demand is clear. We thank Congressman Mrvan for choosing to visit our community and for spending time with our residents, board members, and staff.”
AMC manages six affordable supportive senior living communities in Merrillville, totaling 300 units, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 202 Supportive Housing for the Elderly program. AHEPA 78 Phase VI is a 50-unit property located at 8050 Madison Steet.

Hollister said. “Celebrating its centennial anniversary, AHEPA is at its heart a service organization comprised of volunteer Greek Americans and Philhellenes who aspire to give back to their communities.
