Every individual has the need for security, companionship, care and love. The role of our caregivers is to exceed expectations. Since our inception as a nonprofit organization in 1925, we have been able to give our caregiving team the support they need to lavishly attend to the daily needs, and whimsical desires, of our ladies. Through engaging with the foundational needs of every resident, we have built a community based around trust, ethics, and integrity. While prudent operation is key to our continued success, we are not limited by factors that may strongly influence for-profit homes.
Though we are a private pay facility, no resident pays what it actually costs our organization in care expenses. Our Board of Directors, administrator, and third-party advisors adeptly navigate the financial marketplace and consistently ensure that measures are taken which serve to enhance the fiscal sustainability of our operations. “Giving back” is central to our mission! Our focus is placed on the person rather than the policy which governs them.
The non-profit difference is simple, but the non-profit difference is profound in impact. Every day we are able to expand possibility. Routine is not our threshold for success. Instead, we choose to embrace person centered outcomes that generate out of relationship. These encounters do not simply happen; they are created. As a facility, we strive to protect, guide, and oversee each resident while promoting a sense of security, self-worth, and personal dignity. This is why we are able to say that Petersburg Home for Ladies is committed to its unchanging purpose to provide security, companionship, care, and love and to be an agent of blessing to all whom we touch.
