Welcome to Crawford Manor.

Home may be a place, but it’s also a feeling, a way of life and something we take seriously. Welcome to the family.

Crawford Manor is a 100-unit, non-profit apartment complex located on the beautiful 150 acre campus of Hoosier Village Retirement Center in Boone County, northwest of Indianapolis. Crawford Manor provides a secure living environment in a country setting, but remains close to the conveniences of the city. Crawford Manor is near the quaint village of Zionsville as well as the opportunities located in the northwest corner of Indianapolis.

These HUD-subsidized apartments are available to persons aged 62 years or older and persons needing a specially-designed unit. Crawford Manor features comfortable unfurnished studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units, and ten specially designed apartments. Those qualifying for rental assistance pay no more than 30% of the family’s monthly adjusted income for rent. Crawford Manor is managed and supported by BHI, Inc., one of the area’s premier health care providers for senior citizens. It is the mission of BHI to enhance the quality of life for older adults.
