Community Collaboration

Under News on September 20, 2016

At St. Mary's we believe in working together to make our community better.  Not only do we employ this philosophy to provide professional services to our clients and residents, we also seek out partnerships with other community organizations for mutually beneficial exchanges.  String Concert by Middle School Students from the Frederick Douglass Academy Our facilities are a great place for young people to learn about people living with HIV/AIDS and the medical care available to them.  In addition to learning about long-term health care these young people enjoy some of the benefits of intergenerational learning.  While our residents welcome the opportunity to share their stories with the younger generation they are also honored to host them as guests.  In these structured exchanges outsiders can volunteer their skills or companionship and residents can share their stories that combine cautionary tales with inspirational accounts of their lived experiences.  Together we learn about resilience and survival and how to make our community stronger together.
