Kilkarney Court Apartments are located at 2 Kilkarney Court Drive in Fowler, NY. This two-story complex features 12, one-bedroom apartments. Apartments are designated for people aged 62 and older, or disabled, regardless of age. United Helpers has managed the facility since 2011.
The Kilkarney Court Apartment project is owned by Fowler Housing Development Fund, Company, Inc., which was formed to develop housing for elderly members of the community, at the time, many of them were widows of those who died working in the mines in Fowler, according to Bob Andrews, Steering Committee member.
The Board of Directors is still active today and provides oversight of project operations, handled on a day-to-day basis by United Helpers Management Co., Inc. who assumed management of the project in 2011.
Current members include: Diane Andrews - President, Sue Cartwright - Vice President, Vicky Cappellino - Secretary/Treasurer, Shelly Dodds, Bob Gore, Diane Lallier and Karen Simmons. The project is financed through USDA Rural Development Section 515 Program which has funded several affordable housing complexes in the United States.
Kilkarney Court houses individuals who are income eligible and 62+ years, or disabled. Although the complex has struggled through periods of financial distress and vacancy issues, the apartments are now a prime housing option in the rural Gouverneur area.
