Friendship Terrace in Washington, D.C., is a nonprofit, low-income retirement community "dedicated to providing personalized, affordable services and housing options for older adults at all income levels and of all faiths." Prime Time Radio host Alyne Ellis talks with Friendship Terrace's director of marketing and admissions, Chuck Thornton, about who qualifies for low-income and Section 8 housing in retirement.
