Nonprofit Stewardship, Engaged Voices, Inspired Living, Community Service
In 2005, a small determined group led by Rob Alberts launched a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Middlebury, VT to respond to a local need for a high quality, service-oriented residential living community for older adults. Vermont incorporation papers were filed, the community was built, and residents began moving in during the fall of 2011.
But it was not the builders who ultimately crafted EastView’s vibrant community. That creation and the ongoing sustenance of EastView’s community has been cultivated by its people. Vision led to an articulation of values, conceptualized by regular gatherings of Board and Priority List members.
Those early envisioned values formed the foundation of the EastView community-to-be. Today, the tradition of connecting as residents, neighbors, staff, friends, family, and board members and investing in the principles of community continues to enrich the culture we know as EastView.
Throughout is a warm and supportive way of life that provides security, sense of place, friendship, trusted relationships, sound operation. Foundational to this culture is a set of community values that guide the ebb and flow of daily living.
Local, Nonprofit Governance
EastView operates for the specific purpose of delivering its mission of vibrant community and robust service offerings for those 62⁺. Our governance board is comprised of respected area professionals of diverse backgrounds. They volunteer their time and expertise to guide and advance EastView’s mission through the delivery of meaningful services and systems that enhance the lives of our residents and broader community.
Informed Thinking, Smart Outcomes
It is EastView’s organizational commitment to maintain integrity and deliver excellence in all our work. Our future work, while still centered on delivering an exceptional experience for our residents, will broaden as we develop additional services to welcome a new generation of retirees. Our Board and Leadership team gather regularly to guide the vibrancy of EastView’s existing community while concurrently expanding its service delivery of “third age vitalism.”
We recognize EastView as a treasure. In both day-to-day fiscal decisions and annual budgets, we continuously demonstrate fiscal responsibility to our community. This stewardship extends to prudent use of our natural resources and the beholding of our workforce, both collectively and individually, as essential contributors and partners. In delivery of current services as well as future initiatives, we remain responsible to ensuring the long-term strength and stability of EastView through revenue diversification.
As we live and work together, we honor each person’s right to privacy, dignity, personal feelings and beliefs, and personal space and possessions. We respect and seek the input of our residents, family members, staff, Board, and broader network of colleagues as we maintain and grow our vital community.
We team, as supporting partners, with each resident to assist with self-discovery of new opportunities for fulfillment throughout each person’s natural aging. We strive to create and maintain a thriving community that offers and supports diverse opportunities for engaging in meaningful ways.
High Quality Work Experience
We recognize that without our dedicated and talented staff, the essential services and support we deliver every day would not be possible. EastView continues to advance its commitment to our team through its package of compensation, training and mentoring programs, career development opportunities, recognition, and professional support. Most importantly, amidst the responsibilities in each of our workdays, we prioritize time to thank, support, hear feedback, converse, and enjoy one another.
Advancing services for older individuals is essential societal work in a world that has grown ever more complex in 2020. We believe that EastView has expertise and resources that, when invested in beneficial alliances with others, may produce synergistic outcomes. We are committed to initiating and participating as active collaborators in endeavors that may benefit diverse facets of the experience of aging.
