Marketing and Information & Referral

 FSA offers co-op marketing and advertising for members as well as a referral service for individual consumers who need advice. The referral service helps callers to define their needs and steers them in appropriate directions.


Quaker Orientation

Help for organizations to introduce staff members to how Quaker values, beliefs, history and practices may be manifested in the culture of the organization. Workshops are held two times/year in the greater Philadelphia area. The program also can be presented on-site to organizations at a distance or wanting to engage a larger group in the process. Board members are welcome and separate sessions for boards can be scheduled.


Risk Management

A collaborative approach to risk management in all areas of an organization. Part of FSA’s Peace Church Compliance Program, this program is open to nonprofit senior care organizations.


Staff Training and Development

A variety of skill-based workshops focused on topics such as constructive communication, conflict management, and valuing differences. FSA staff is also available to travel to member organizations to provide staff training on a wide array of issues including: communication, core values, or other areas identified by individual organizations. Sessions can involve residents.
