Our Resident Services team continuously strives to improve the lives of our residents based on our four pillars: Education, Health & Wellness, Financial Stability, and Community Engagement. In the past year, we’ve seen our team of innovative and compassionate Resident Services Coordinators rally their communities together to combat feelings of isolation from COVID-19 and provide the necessary tools to live well. From holiday celebrations to rental assistance applications, and everything in between, check out a few notable statistics from 2021:
- 3,108 unique residents participated in activities to reduce social isolation.
- 558 residents received help with applying for rental assistance.
- $1.5M+ in rental assistance secured for residents throughout the pandemic.

- 474 residents were assisted in receiving SNAP (Food Stamps).
