Review for EPISCOPAL HOUSING FOUNDATION INC dba Episcopal Place, Birmingham, AL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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".

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.

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...
