Not-for-profit communities, such as Peace Village, manage their financial resources in accordance with their mission. Long-standing values are reflected in governance and management.

  • Value. Profits are reinvested into the community

Yes. A monthly fee is a consolidation of all the bills and costs of living in a single-family home. Your monthly fee will pay for all maintenance, housekeeping, meal plan, scheduled transportation, electricity, campus amenities, and so much more. When you compare your monthly rate to what you’d be paying if you stayed in your home, it’s easy to see the value. Your budget will thank you.

Lower monthly fees
While you pay a membership fee coming in, your monthly fee is much lower than you would pay at a rental facility. On average, the difference is made up in as few as 13 months.

Refund of membership fee
As much as 90% of the membership fee is refunded when you leave Peace Village. Or, if your needs become greater, you can use it, when needed, to fund your stay in our assisted living or memory care community.

A sense of community
Many of our residents have lived here anywhere from five to 15 years. When moving into a Life Plan Community, you get to know your neighbors and form lasting friendships — unlike a month-to-month rental facility where there may be a high turnover of tenants.

As a nonprofit, we are here to serve the community! Any profits made are reinvested back into the community. As well, our mission and vision are something that we live. Fundraising is a large part of who we are; the money raised goes toward “Lora’s Fund.” Lora’s Fund is there for our residents who outlive their funds so they may stay in our community even when their assets run low.

Yes! Do you like to get away for the winter? Ask us about our snowbird discount!

The community may have various security measures in place, such as controlled access to buildings, security personnel, emergency response systems, and regular safety checks. These measures are designed to create a secure environment and provide peace of mind for independent living residents.
