The word “Awenasa” is Native American in origin meaning “my home.” This name is appropriate given the local heritage of the Town of Coxsackie and the basis of this project being a community and a home for active adults and those with higher needs. 3t was retained to create a master plan consisting of over 70 residential units for active adults, as well as a larger facility to house those that require more assistance for their everyday living. Awenasa truly will become a pleasant home and community created from virgin soil.
