I have donated both money and time to Episcopal Housing Foundation. The board and staff are committed to providing the residents there the best in living experiences possible. I enjoy participating in the many activities and services provided for the residents, which also helps those with families, too as it relieves any concerns family members may have about their loved one's housing and well-being. Tim Blanton and his staff do a wonderful job of abiding by the rules that come with the limited HUD funding and work to provide the additional benefits and features that result in measurable outcomes. To the board and staff I say "well done". To anyone contemplating becoming involved in some way, possibly as a donor, with Episcopal Housing Foundation, I say, " join me".
My relationship with Episcopal Place has been both as a financial supporter and my company serves the organization as well. This has allowed me to observe first hand the impressive passion that the leadership and staff have for their mission. You can easily perceive and easily observe that this is an organization of good people doing good work that makes a real difference in the lives of others. They are a model nonprofit!
It's a joy to see how, through using supportive services, seniors are able to stay in their homes longer and compensate for the things they can no longer do. Many of the seniors at Episcopal Place no longer drive, so the Episcopal Place van takes them to the grocery store, to WalMart, to the bank and to other places where they need to take care of business or purchase needed items. When they are no longer strong enough to lift and maneuver the vacuum cleaner, they can get monthly housekeeping service at a very affordable price. If they get sick and need to drink Ensure to help with weight gain, Episcopal Place helps provide them Ensure if their monthly income is so stretched that they cannot afford it. I can't image being in those situations as a senior and not having the help that Episcopal Place residents have. I know that my contributions are making a real difference in the lives of older people.
