At what moment did you laugh the hardest?  Who affected your life most?  What moment would you like to relive?  These questions inspire us every day at Episcopal Place.  It is home to 150 vibrant and diverse individuals who have amazing stories to share. 

Year End Giving

Episcopal Place is truly a melting pot of folks from all walks of life and from exercise to healthy cooking classes, worship services, bingo, performing arts and more, there is never a dull moment. 

 

It’s truly a blessing to talk with our residents, hear their stories, and understand how their lives have improved because of Episcopal Place.  Your investments in Episcopal Place make it a wonderful home for our residents, and for that we, send a heartfelt “Thank You”. 

 

There are too many success stories to share in one letter, but we’re certain you will enjoy this recent conversation with our resident, “Sam”.

 

Sam moved to Episcopal Place earlier this year.  He is a disabled veteran who had fallen on hard times and was living in a less than desirable motel riddled with crime, drugs, and pests.  Sam’s living conditions were unsafe and after paying the monthly rent, he was left with only $39 to spend for the month.  He had no transportation, no funds for medical care, and was forced to eat on $1.33 per day.  After being on the Episcopal Place waiting list for about two years, Sam was grateful and excited to move into our community and have a real home.  Sam now pays an affordable rent that matches his budget, and lives in a safe, clean environment with wonderful neighbors.  With the help of the Episcopal Place Social Worker, furniture was donated to furnish Sam’s new apartment and he has access to free services that ensure healthy nutritious meals, transportation, and healthcare.  Once Sam moved in, our staff noticed that he was very hard of hearing, so Episcopal Place was able to cover the cost of getting new hearing aids, as well.  Sam is just one of 150 residents who all have amazing stories to share.

 

One of society’s most important responsibilities is to ensure that our seniors live out their lives in dignity. Nothing is more fundamental to that dignity than having a place to call home.  Without Episcopal Place and the ECares program most residents would be alone, without transportation, and unable to live healthy independent lives.

It is our ECares program that provides free transportation to medical appointments and grocery stores, hot lunches, pastoral care, housekeeping for sick or frail residents, health screenings, exercise classes, social and intellectual activities, a relief fund for financial emergencies, and a pantry for immediate food and personal care needs.  

 

We are grateful for your investments that make our ECares program possible.  As the holidays approach, please include Episcopal Place in your year-end giving.  Donations can be made securely online at episcopalplace.org or with the enclosed return envelope.  Your investment will make a difference in the lives of Episcopal Place residents.

 

With gratitude,

Episcopal Place Staff & Board Members
