Our Mission is to provide older adults with comprehensive and coordinated human services to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles, independence, well-being and quality of life.

Our Target Population

  • Older Adults in Marion County age 55+
  • Older adults served yearly = over 1,250
  • U.S. Census results for Marion County: more older adults are living alone, more people are living to older ages and the 55+ population is rapidly increasing.

What difference does Heritage Place make?

  • We help older adults live in their residence of choice, an important aspect of independent living.
  • We help older adults live more socially active lives - important because socially isolated seniors are at high risk for poor health and for poor physical, mental, emotional and social functioning.
  • Watch our video: Heritage Place - Making a Difference in Our Community

What are the Benefits to the Community?

  • Economic - Shop locally, take care of property
  • Crime/Safety - participate in crime watch, watch the comings and goings near where they live, no wild parties, don't commit crimes
  • Volunteer - at church and for other not-for-profits, (i.e. museums, theatres, boards of directors, hospitals, fund raising events)
  • Political - vote, read newspapers

What are Heritage Place Goals?

  • To build our capacity for serving more people
  • To continue providing high quality services
  • To offer more programming to address the needs of older adults
