…With Dignity & Grace
Our world today is full of insecurity. Old assumptions are not holding true as people live longer, workers change careers and cities more often, and technology influences all that we do. Plans for the future do not turn out the way you expect and life’s surprises present challenges to the future. Yet the basic human needs are no different today than they were thousands of years ago: food, shelter, the relationships of family and community. People today are no less deserving of quality housing for a reasonable price and a supportive community.
As a Christian faith-based agency, we believe that God is a source of constancy and hope even in times of change and uncertainty and that God calls us to be a sign of God’s presence and providence in the world. Scripture envisions a world where basic human needs are available to all with dignity and grace and the Bible urges us on to continue that work of justice until all have a place they can call home. Psalm 68 praises God as “Father of orphans and protector of widows” and proclaims that “God in his holy habitation….gives the desolate a home to live in.” It calls us to “care for the orphan and the widow” (James 1:27) and to encourage everyone to know that God is with us, always.
At United Methodist Church Union, we hear that as a call to a view the housing industry as a ministry, not a money-making venture. Older adults and families looking to care for their loved ones should not feel they are alone. We strive to be professional and compassionate in all that we do so that the men and women are treated with respect and connected to the community around them. Our hope for all our residents is that they might live a life of independence, feel part of a community, and know that people (even management groups) today still care.

Programs and the Service Coordinator
Service coordinators largely focus on keeping residents as independent as possible. We function as a advocate for the rights and well being of elderly residents, educate residents and surrounding community on services available to seniors, act as a liaison to make various outreaches when necessary on residents’ behalves as well as acting as a referral agent, connecting residents to a wide range of community services. Service Coordinators understand the value of independence for the seniors we serve; that is one of many reasons that service coordinators meet with seniors and set up a personalized support network. The goal is to ensure that our residents receive services to assist them with remaining independent.
The benefits to having a service coordinator are that data collected found that senior independent living communities have found that older adults are able to remain independent for a longer period of time than communities without service coordination. Service Coordinators empower residents to participate in activities that help residents to manage their lives, fostering a sense of confidence and heightened sense of community among staff and fellow residents. Assessing the needs of each resident, service coordinators provide peace of mind for both residents and families. While medical and financial care is left to licensed professionals, service coordinators develop personalized care plans to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of residents.
