How Embrace Living Communities Support Others

Back to Blog

We’re grateful for the partnerships that help us continue providing safe, comfortable homes where residents can actively age in place. And though we have many of those partnerships that enrich our communities, there are several relationships our communities have that give back to other local organizations. From homeless shelters to veteran programs, read some of the examples of how Embrace Living Communities’ residents and/or staff work together to uplift others in the community.

Making Winter Accessories

Residents at GreenCastle of Mulford (Rockford, Illinois) have created gifts for adults who are homeless and have mental illnesses at The Jubilee Center. Residents have formed a knitting and crocheting group who makes scarves for those in The Jubilee Center day program.


Making Holidays Brighter

Both residents and staff at Greencastle of Mulford (Rockford, IL) decorated over 250 cookies during the holiday season so that veteran volunteers in the “Christmas for Vets” program could distribute them to other veterans in nursing homes throughout the Rockford community.


Praying for the Homeless

Residents from Greencastle of Allerton (Rockford, Illinois) included written prayers inside silverware packets they arranged for the homeless residents at Carpenter’s Place.


Providing Coats In the Cold

Our Bethel Greencastle (Kansas City, Missouri) community set up a coat drive during the colder winter months, where three bins were filled with coats for women and children. Managers then took the collected items to City Union Mission, a shelter in Kansas City, where needy families could receive them.


Feeding the Hungry

The staff of Greencastle of Bienterra (Rockford, Illinois) and a couple of residents prepared and served breakfast for those at a local homeless shelter, Carpenter’s House.
