We know our residents seek to have relationships and our faith-based approach allows the community leadership to place a premium on being relational, not transactional – being person centered, not corporate driven – being motivated by benevolence, not by profits.  For us, the idea of person-centered service for our residents is a way of life.

Since 1959, we have operated under a simple guiding principle: that business and service go hand in hand. Our mission of business for benevolence means we realize that we are all connected and share common values.  Since we believe that service can also be fun, we offer our residents the chance to serve our world by loving, giving and doing.
