Mission: Friendship Manor is a faith-based nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community, honoring the well-being and independence of the individuals and communities we serve.
This year, like the last several, Friendship Manor asks the public to “share in the care” of seniors who have outlived their resources. When seniors outlive their resources, they refuse to stop caring for them. No one is ever asked to leave the Manor simply because they lived too long. For over a decade now, they have been supplying $1 Million dollars per year in charitable, non-reimbursed care. This couldn’t possibly happen without the Quad Cities community “sharing in the care” through Birdies for Charity. "Birdies is a very big deal to us and our residents, and of course to their families," said Jeff Condit, Development Director.
Friendship Manor provides seniors with charitable care, if they outlive their resources. This is part of their heritage and is at the core of their foundation. All gifts, including the bonus dollars, helps assure the promise of their Life Care Guarantee. Friendship Manor values careful stewardship of their gifts, assets and resources. The Bonus Fund donation helps secure this promise for those to come in the future. Many gifts from many sources all "Share in the Care" at Friendship Manor.
The Friendship Manor residents depend on the staff, and in return, the Manor is depending on the public at large to help “share in the care.” Friendship manor serves all seniors with dignity, respect, and humility. They value the highest quality of resident care and services, delivered compassionately, and professionally.
