Faith-Led and Person First
We are proud to part of Christian Horizons, a faith-led, person-first organization. The needs of those we serve are always at the forefront and instead of answering to stakeholders, our profits are reinvested directly into our campus and services for improved programming, continued renovations, upkeep, fair wages for associates and peace of mind that we’ll always do the right thing for those we serve.
We serve and employ people of all faiths and denominations with innovative and intuitive offerings that empower older adults in mind, body and spirit.
