... We see this collaboration as an extension of both organizations' commitment to seniors. -Larry Bradshaw, NLCS' President & CEO
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
National Lutheran Communities & Services (NLCS) announced it has entered into a management agreement with Fellowship Square Foundation (FSF) to act as the management agent for FSF’s five senior housing communities, effective January 1, 2014.
The collaboration between the two Lutheran-based, not-for-profits came out of a shared mission to serve area seniors with housing and health care options. Currently FSF has five Fellowship Houses, four located in Virginia and one located in Maryland, which serve more than 700 seniors daily. NLCS provides seniors with a variety of lifestyle, residential and health care options through retirement communities located in Maryland and Virginia.
According to NLCS’ President & CEO Larry Bradshaw, the commonality of mission between the two organizations made this partnership a natural fit.
“FSF has a rich legacy of supporting seniors in need and we see this collaboration as an extension of both organizations’ commitment to seniors,” Larry Bradshaw said. “We’re enhancing our mission to seniors by helping FSF further its mission of providing affordable senior housing in the Washington, D.C.-Metro region.”
FSF’s Board President Charles Wortman said, “This agreement with NLCS will generate better service to our residents and further enhance our mission to those who are the most vulnerable in our society.”
