"VOLUNTEERS OF AMERICA – AFFORDABLE SENIOR HOUSING" PROGRAM
Across the USA.
"We are also a national leader in providing care and housing for seniors. In the United States today, we are one of the largest nonprofit providers of affordable senior housing and we are a leading nonprofit provider of skilled nursing care and assisted living for seniors."
"Here at Volunteers of America I found a place that feels like home, where I can get everything that I need, I can get my hair done, I can get my meals, I can get my mail, I can get anything done that I want. I thought I was happy in the other places but after moving here I had a completely different feeling, so I didn't know it until I moved here. If your not happy somewhere just keep looking until you do find a place that you're happy. When I come through the door I say, well I'm home, this is my home this is my family, it gave me peace of mind."
