Splashing into Summer

Summer is here in the Las Vegas Valley, which means lots of sunshine and hot weather.

Team HAND Wraps Up Golden Groceries Deliveries

More Than a Home at Monsignor C.T. Shallow Apartment Homes

Rental Assistance Saves the Day

When our team helps connect our residents with resources, it means more than a few dollars in their pockets. Sometimes, it means being able to stay in their home and maintain access to those resources. Recently, our Resident Services and Property Management teams helped Judith, a resident at one of our independent senior communities, obtain housing assistance. Judith says: "Every year I often worry about my rent increasing. I get
