Guiding Principles

As we conduct business, we strive to uphold these principles that guide us in our day-to-day work.

Honor the heritage of the organization: its linkage to the Episcopal Church and its mission to serve all elderly as a nonprofit provider of services and housing.

Respect one another as members of the community, whether resident or staff, striving to be collaborative and to treat one another with dignity.

Embrace the unique characteristics of the individual while building and supporting the needs of each community, dedicated to expanding the diversity of those who live and work within the ESC family.

Serve with integrity, ethically conducting the business and management of the organization so that it meets current needs as well as plans for the future.

Grow community programs and housing prudently in order to serve seniors of a wide range of financial means.

Build the resources and financial capacity of ESC and ESC Foundation acting as good stewards, in order to assure the organization’s present and future ability to satisfy its constituents and achieve its Mission.
