Located in the Salem Point neighborhood, Lafayette Housing includes 61 family apartments, with 90% Latino residents. Like the majority of Lafayette Housing, the Salem Point neighborhood has a majority population of Latino immigrants and second and older generations. The acquisition of these apartments in 1989 helped ensure a healthy stock of affordable housing units in the Salem Point neighborhood. Overall, a majority of the foreign born population of Salem resides in the Point, consistent with its history as a settlement for new immigrants.
