Spotlight on Gaston County: LSC completes purchase of Dallas High School apartments

By April 27, 2021No Comments

It’s official: LSC has completed the purchase of the Dallas High School Apartments! LSC has been managing the apartments for three years.

What was formerly Dallas High School was renovated in 2003 to create apartments to serve low-income residents of Gaston County.

An interesting LSC connection is that the mother of LSC President Ted Goins, as well as her three sisters, completed all 12 grades at Dallas High School, as did LSC supporter George Rhyne.

“Lutheran Services Carolinas and the Gaston County area have a deep and ever-growing relationship,” Goins said, citing LSC’s service in Gaston County through foster care, services to people with developmental disabilities, its partnership in the Senior TLC PACE program, and now, its ownership of the Dallas High School Apartments.

Lutheran Services Carolinas is a founding partner of Senior TLC, the Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, serving all of Gaston and part of Cleveland and Lincoln Counties. Now serving 240 low income seniors in their homes who would otherwise be in nursing homes, STLC is one of the largest and most successful PACE programs in the state.

Mountain Ridge group home in Gastonia provides a safe home for six adults with developmental disabilities, who would likely be institutionalized without it.

LSC appreciates the partnership of our many supporters in Gaston County.
