I have worked in the senior housing business for a number of years and have found that Episcopal Place is by far one of the most impressive orgainizations I have worked with. The staff are truely dedicated to providing more to their residents than just a nice apartment to call home. They are continuely looking for ways they can provide what is needed by each one of the residents who live at Episcopal Place. I don't know what some of the residents would do without the extra services offered at Episcopal Place. It is truely at unique organization.

Episcopal Place is a wonderful place for seniors on a limited income. The Board and staff go beyond what most non-profits of this type housing program do for their residents and it shows. The community is beautiful and the residents are benefiting from all the extra services and activties that are offered.

I have volunteered and donated to Episcopal Place. The staff is dedicated to providing an above average home/housing environment. They go beyond the role of simply serving as a "rental office". They care about the residents with compassion. Activities, experiences and services are provided that allow those residents, who wish to participate to have an enriched, full life.
I feel that my donations have been used efficiently and wisely. The diversity of the residents indicates that Episcopal Place is not just for Episcopalians and the elderly. My positive interaction with residents and staff members proves to me that the mission statement of "Enriching Lives with Grace & Comfort" is being well carried out. I plan to continue my involvement with time and money. I think it would be a great place to live, when the time comes, too.

I can't think of any changes I would make to this organization other than encouraging even more support from the community in order to change/increase the organization's budget. They already do so much in a time of economic cutbacks; however, I know the dream is to provide even more.

For years I had driven by Episcopal Place and knew that it was housing, I thought for senior citizens. And to be honest, I thought they all had to be of the Episcopalian denomination. Then the church that I attend, Southside Baptist, began to encourage volunters to visit and help in ways identified by the staff. I also learned that some of my church family actually live at Episcopal Place. So, it's not just for Episcopalians and it's not just for seniors, but those with disabilities, too. Not long ago I visited for a performance given by Four for Time for the residents in the lovely assembly room. It was well attended and was like being in a New York cabaret! I met and talked with some of the residents. They have a walled garden and an aviary in one of the sitting rooms, designed for the residents' amusement. One of the residents identified the different birds and informed me of their habits. I observed the staff mingling with the residents and it was like a family. I kept thinking this is where I would want my parents to live. Then the thought occured to me, I am fast approaching that generation and this is where I want to live. A room with a balcony, in one of the buildings adjacent to the Virginia Samford Theater, the park and just off Highland Avenue, not far from St. Vincent's Hospital, plus a great, caring staff. Just hope there's room, when I'm ready...

As a staff member at Episcopal Place and a daughter who cared for elderly parents, I am proud of the services we provide and the attractive and safe environment we create for our low-income seniors. I am so proud of what we do that most of my charitable giving is directed here.

Make it bigger and able to serve more seniors who need it. We have a long waiting list of seniors needing affordable housing with services and we are the only facility in town that provides that combination in a comprehensive way.

I have lived at Episcopal Place for 4 1/2 years and have nothing but positive experiences while living here. I have been blessed by the staff and the other residents. I know my life has been changed for the better just through the services offered such as the medical transportation and different shopping trips and health screenings and programs. I think I once said this is what heaven must be like and I meant it. I feel so down and blue and then one smile and one hug from staff or a neighbor and I feel better. I was meant to be here and am a proud part of this special community.

The Episcopal Place is truly a remarkable environment. It's supported by a caring and loving staff, who makes certain each resident remains independent and valued. The residents are former artists, actors, painters, writers, nurses, nuns, veterans, truck drivers, and governments workers all living their lives in this lovely environment off Highland Avenue. As the Activities Director, I get to see them during some fun times, but also see the challenges that come with aging while maintaining a sense of dignity. The Episcopal Place is a true jewel of a place.

In my short time as a member of the staff here at The Episcopal Place, I've been overwhelmed at the impact the programs offered to the residents have on their overall well being. For instance, Martha, one of my favorite residents, has learning disabilitles and was unable to live in an unsupervised environment. She comes to all the creative activities offered ( in fact, she's the first one to sign up) and I've noticed her speech and self confidence have improved remarkably. She feels safe, nutured, and loved, and it's a joy to watch her day by day. The Episcopal Place is a haven and home, a safe place to be.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my daily experience with people. My patience has expanded, for sure.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

want more funding for creative programs.

I've worked at Episcopal Place for five years and enjoy it very much . I enjoy the team that I work with . We make sure we provide the residents with a clean, safe, well maintanced facility with a lot of activities that they can be involved with if they like.I enjoy working around our residents and listening to there stories about life and saying how much they enjoy Episcopal Place. When I was first applying and allowed to join the team, I had no idea that I would be a part of something so great. I am very excited about what we have accomplished here and look foward to the great things we will accomplish in the future.

Several years ago,too many to count,I was privileged as rector of St. Alban's Episcopal Church to accompany volunteers who had prepared refreshments for some birthday parties and Halloween Parties for the residents of Episcopal Place. Everyone from the church and from Episcopal Place enjoyed the food and the fellowship. The residents were happy; we all enjoyed being together.

I am so happy and thankful to be a resident of Episcopal Place. The staff members here really care about the residents and go out of their way to make our lives easier, safer and more fulfilling. For instance, a wireless emergency call system was recently installed at no cost to the residents. We each have a personal button to wear on our wrist or around our necks which we can press to call for help in case of a health emergency. The system works no matter where we are on the property here. This is only one of the many extra services that Episcopal Housing Foundation provides residents. Episcopal Place is not just low income housing for seniors and people with disabilities. It is a place to keep your mind and body active and healthy; and a place to grow old with dignity, respect, friendship and family.

Episcopal Place provides amazing supportive services to frail seniors and those with disabilities. They help people remain independent in a beautiful and loving environment. Their model of helping people with housing and long term services and supports can be a model our country uses going forward to care for those in need. Birmingham AL is fortunate to have such an incredible organization leading the way in which efficient care will be provided in the future.
