Care Calls

Volunteers provide social support to single adult residents. After training, volunteers will be connected with a single adult living at one of Foundation Communities’ properties with a goal to provide companionship in the form of regular phone check-ins. Care Calls volunteers help to mitigate the negative effects of social isolation through acceptance, care, and compassion.

Sustainability Efforts
For the last five years, the Sustainability Department at Foundation Communities has provided new residents with environmental education on energy, water, waste, and indoor air quality. Our goal is to instill new habits right at move-in. On average, we greet 1,000 new residents each year. As we open more properties, your investment will help to expand this critical program.
