At its June Board Meeting, the Homestead Village Board of Directors approved a new vision statement, the first change in over ten years. The new vision came out of a department leader retreat held in April of this year and was carefully crafted from a list of key visionary statements identified by Homestead's leaders. In addition many other organization vision statements were reviewed to find the right balance between brevity and content. The resulting statement is a unique vision of Homestead Village's preferred future.
Working in harmony with the Homestead Village Mission Statement, "Enhancing independence and dignity as together we create a compassionate community", the vision clearly articulates what a compassionate community should be. It identifies kindness, respect, skill, individuality, engagement, improvement and wellness as the keys to creating a bright and successful future. It is our hope that this vision statement, along with our mission, values and philosophy of care will establish clear principles and standards through which we will grow and prosper.
