Who We Serve

FSA Supports Excellence in Values-Aligned Organizations that Serve Seniors

Our membership includes CCRCs/life plan communities, home care groups, foundations and more. These organizations share important features that have become associated with values-based senior services. Operated under the guidance of boards of directors, our members are committed to the importance of maintaining a values-based approach in the life and work of the organization. Many of the boards continue to be at least 50 percent Quaker in composition.

Each of our members provides caring, high quality services that support the health and dignity of older adults. They seek to respond to the spiritual as well as physical and social needs of the people they serve. All are established as not-for-profit organizations.

These organizations share the belief that the later years of life are full of potential for love, growth, friendship and contributions to others. Together, they offer a unique range of services for people with diverse needs, interests and circumstances.

While our members have a shared set of values, they are not part of a chain and are not replicas of one another. Each is distinctive in its setting, delivery of services, admissions procedures, contracts and financial arrangements. The particular programs of each organization grow and change over time in response to evolving needs. Each seeks to be responsive to its own residents or clients and to the needs of its surrounding community.
