2017 marks 33 years of Friends House providing Quaker-inspired elder services. Now, more than three decades after the first Friends House residents moved in, the good news is people are living longer, more active, and healthier lives. The bad news is some peoples’ savings for retirement doesn’t stretch far enough to make up for the extended lifetime and increase in cost of living. At Friends House, the Residents’ Support Fund is a safety net for this kind of situation.
We believe the broader community understands the importance of this safety net, that’s why we’re asking for generous contributions to the Friends House Residents’ Support Fund. Use the links on this page to make a secure one-time or recurring gift online. Click here to make a gift today.
One of the primary benefits of living in a Continuing Care Retirement Community like Friends House is that when health problems occur, people can remain in their community, easily accessible to loved ones and friends. The Residents’ Support Fund continues this security by providing an emergency financial reserve available for residents.
Your support of the Friends House Residents’ Support Fund:
- Helps elders who have made their lives an integrated part of the Friends House community stay in their homes when additional financial support is needed.
- Is vital to ensure this fund continues to grow and be available for years to come.
- Provides a sense of security for current and prospective residents knowing that if financial needs arise in the future, there is a reserve – right here at Friends House – available for them to use.
