Valley Brook Village is located on a 16 acre site that consists of three buildings that provide a total of sixty-two 1&2 bedroom apartment homes around a common village green. The three-story main building contains 50 housing units, offices for management and social services, a community room, and a vocational training and computer room. The two smaller buildings that look like townhomes contain 12 one-bedroom units.
