Hotel Oakland is an affordable housing community that provides rental assistance to seniors. 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of this landmark building in downtown Oakland. 

Using portraits and interviews, photographer Rachel Welles presents the historical and social significance of the building’s pro-active health focused “village” model that could enable other affordable senior residential communities in America to follow suit.
