Meet Our Board

The Friends House Board of Directors maintains oversight of Friends House and actively promotes its mission, vision, strategic goals, policies, programs and services. It is the Board’s responsibility to establish overall policy, ensure financial health and stability and follow trends in the field of Continuing Care Retirement Communities in order to make informed decisions. In doing its work, the Board is guided by the Quaker testimonies of service, equality, integrity, simplicity, and the peaceful resolution of conflict.

In accordance with its by-laws, the Friends House Board must have at least one member who is a current resident of Friends House. In addition, the Friends House Resident Association President and a resident volunteer appointed by the Residents’ Association attend board meetings to ensure fluid communication between the board, the staff and the residents.
