Doing Good for Others
Doing Good for Others: Springpoint Social Accountability
“Helping others in need is not only a responsibility of life; it is what gives meaning to life.” – Mollie Marti
There’s no better feeling than taking the opportunity to do good for others. Whether this is offering financial support or simply taking the time to clean a park, there are many ways for us to give our time and talents. At Springpoint, we’re committed to serving others. We are a nonprofit organization that takes the responsibility to offer public benefit to both our residents and the greater community as a privilege.
Impact from Within Our Organization and Local Communities
The Springpoint Foundation is one facet of Springpoint that focuses on making life better for older adults through resident and community partnership programs. Through the generosity of our donors and residents, we are able to offer the following programs in our organization:
- Resident Financial Assistance Program – We offer security to those who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their resources, so they will not have to leave their home due to financial difficulties.
- Spiritual Care Program – To better prepare for life’s changes, spiritual guidance and support is available.
- Affordable Housing Support – Along with a cost-friendly residence, key initiatives included in affordable housing extend to emergency preparedness, transportation and health and wellness. Community Cares is also a program that provides donations and health essentials to affordable housing residents.
- Tomorrow’s Leaders Program – Young people interested in careers in senior living are offered an educational work experience in our communities.
Along with the impact from within Springpoint, we find opportunities for partnerships in our local communities. These partnerships vary from monetary donations to time spent volunteering through programs. Some of the organizations we’re proud to partner with include:
- Alzheimer’s Association
- Easter Seals
- Ronald McDonald House
- Girls on the Run
- Salvation Army
- Saint Clare’s Hospital
- Trenton Soup Kitchen
- Wounded Warriors
Some of our residents even take it upon themselves to find opportunities to serve – Lillian Williams, a resident of Springpoint community Winchester Gardens, has found many opportunities to give her time and talents. She volunteers at the Health Center at Winchester Gardens, as well as at nearby Overlook Hospital. Lillian is one of many – our Springpoint residents thrive through volunteer opportunities. From 2015 to 2018 we saw almost a three-fold increase in the number of people served and a 94% increase in volunteer hours.
The total value of our community benefit over the last three years is $12.6 million. This is an achievement we are proud of, and we will work to continue our impact. Our mission is, “To inspire our family with endless opportunities” – and this includes the opportunity to do good for others.
