Thank you for taking a few minutes to review this report highlighting the solid advancement of PVM’s Mission in 2019. With everything that has since transpired across Michigan, our nation and the entire world, 2019 seems like it was many years ago. Nevertheless, it is fitting and proper to reflect on just the past year. PVM’s notable achievements in 2019 include: • Progress in achieving the 2019-2021 system-wide strategic directions and initiatives. • Progress made by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Task Force, resulting in final Board decisions to acquire full ownership of three LIHTC financed communities; Redford Villa (Redford), Oakland Woods II (Pontiac) and Lake Huron Woods (Fort Gratiot/Port Huron). • Continued planning for phase II development at East Harbor with expanded independent living accommodations and wellness center. • Increased resident occupancies at Westland, East Harbor and many other communities; and reaching 100% occupancy at Lakeshore Senior Living ahead of schedule. • Renewal of management agreements for McFarlan Charitable Corporation (Flint) and Delta Manor (Detroit). • LIHTC financing closed for University Meadows I (Detroit) in partnership with Develop Detroit. • Significant improvement in staff engagement results (participation rate and actual feedback). • Expansion of PACE Southeast Michigan (in partnership with Henry Ford Health System) with new Center opened in Sterling Heights and planning for new Centers in Eastpointe, Pontiac and future locations. • PACE Central Michigan (in partnership with Michigan Masonic Home in Mt. Pleasant) operational start-up and increased enrollments. • Engagement with the senior housing preservation collaborative efforts in Detroit, with increasing national recognition. • Expansion of CareSync Solutions LLC (a collaboration with Homestead Home Care and Advantage Living Centers) services and programs, including assumption of management responsibilities for the Same Address Program (of the AAA 1-B).

• Metro In-Home Solutions LLC (a collaboration with Jewish Family Service, Hartford Development Foundation and Southwest Solutions) completed an additional 20+ homes with major modifications through funding provided by Chemical Bank in conjunction with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis. • Strong regulatory compliance performance with numerous state and federal agencies. • Strong advocacy in Lansing and Washington DC. • Planning for the next comprehensive state-wide campaign for the PVM Foundation; along with submission of multiple grant applications, building relationships with new foundations, strengthening relationships with existing foundations, expanding base of individual donors and strengthening overall stewardship • Unmodified (clean) opinions received for the independent financial audits of all entities. • All major system-wide events were effectively planned and executed. • Several presentations by PVM staff members at state and national meetings.


Dear Friends and Stakeholders of PVM,

We invite you to stay in regular contact with PVM through social media, by visiting our website at www.pvm.org and by pursuing many of the other opportunities for you to become engaged with our Mission of service to communities across Michigan. PVM’s BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) continues to be… To make Michigan the best place to age by 2030. With YOUR continued engagement and support, PVM will persist in its efforts to make this happen. Much of what was done during 2019 represented successful movement toward that goal and positioned PVM well for further progress in 2020, our 75th anniversary year. Sincerely and with deep appreciation,

William L. Ball Chair - PVM Board of Directors

“ None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend

without fear of bankruptcy.” – Fred De Witt Van Amburgh


Connecting with Each Other PVM is pleased to provide our 2019 Annual Report. The theme is CONNECTING WITH EACH OTHER. It is well documented that one of the most important aspects of life is being connected with others and having a sense of belonging. Studies have even credited this sense of connection to assisting with the happiness index and longevity. One of PVM’s strengths is connecting with each other in many ways with residents, donors, volunteers, board members and staff. The scope of these connections go far beyond our over 30 communities via home and community based services, wellness, technology, and partnering with local regional, state and national communities/organizations. Providing a road map for the future of aging is foremost in our minds and actions while providing outstanding service excellence in all we do. That following pages include some major accomplishments and initiatives we undertook in 2019.



– Mission –





Housing & Wellness Programming

Home & Community Based Services

Guided by our Christian heritage, we serve seniors of all faiths and create new possibilities for quality living.

– Vision – To transform senior living and services and enhance the communities we serve.

– Core Purpose – Our faith traditions call us to create diverse environments, programs and services where seniors are able to achieve the best possibilities and purposes in life.

University Meadows In partnership with Develop Detroit, renovations began at University Meadows Village in Detroit’s Woodbridge neighborhood. It is a mixed-use, rehabilitation and new construction project which shows promise to be a major component in redeveloping an important neighborhood. Existing residents were vulnerable to displacement if it had been converted into market-rate apartments. In late 2019 work started to upgrade every apartment, replace all major systems, and install solar panels on the roof. The next phase will include mixed-income housing and retail. Future plans also call for enhancing resident services which include an examination room, gardening classes and other wellness and engagement programs.

The Village of East Harbor

Grand opening ribbon cutting for Marguerite’s Restaurant at The Village of East Harbor.


Marguerite’s Restaurant grand opening and ribbon cutting honored the legacy of Marguerite Nolan, a former resident who left a very generous bequest upon her passing. She did so in appreciation for the excellent care which she received for many years from the VEH staff. Marguerite was well-loved. No outfit was complete without a hat – and she had several! She was always dressed to the nines, even after she moved into nursing care. A display of some of her fashions and accessories is featured at the entrance of the restaurant. Her generous spirit will live on as residents, family members and friends gather for meals and fellowship. In addition, the newly constructed rehabilitation center created in an opportunity to further enhance services to East Harbor residents as well as expand our reach into the surrounding community. This focus is part of an overall plan for the campus of the future — bringing our vision to reality.

The Village of Redford

Doris and Don enjoy all that The Village of St. Martha’s provides being fully engaged in life. They attend all the events offered and give back to the Village and others on a daily basis.

Weinberg Green Houses® at Thome Rivertown Neighborhood A convening of aging services professionals from around the country was co-hosted on the Thome Rivertown campus along with the The Green House Project. This organization is the nationally recognized official body dedicated to “Revolutionizing care to empower lives...The Green House Project partners with senior living providers to create homes for elders that demonstrate more powerful, meaningful and satisfying lives, work and relationships.”

PVM’s founding campus celebrated renovation of its entire first floor at The Villa which included an updated community room. A longstanding vibrant member of the Redford community, the Village represents the past and the future of PVM. The addition of a service coordinator and enhanced services, along with new wellness programs, have also added value to the residents’ experience.

The Village of Westland In order to meet the needs of present and prospective residents, The Village of Westland renovated a portion of its campus with additional studio apartments. This was done in response to surveys and requests made by local seniors. A modern look and proximity to a new satellite dining room has made for a very appealing option. The feedback has been very positive. Enhanced services and wellness programs have also contributed to satisfaction of residents. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held with dignitaries in attendance.

PACE Central Michigan opened its doors to residents across multiple counties in central Michigan. Located in Mt. Pleasant, it is a partnership between Michigan Masonic Home and PVM. It joins an established network of 13 PACE locations throughout Michigan. The grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony was attended by numerous dignitaries from around the entire state.

PACE Southeast Michigan Continued interest philanthropically and in the aging services arena has brought international attention along with convenings to focus on the future of aging in America. The expanded footprint geographically has allowed PACE Southeast Michigan to provide support and services to many more seniors who reside in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. Many PVM residents utilize these services.



Village Victory Cup The 14th Annual Village Victory Cup was held in Novi. Supported by an army of volunteers, hundreds of residents converged at the Suburban Collection Showplace to compete in events that challenge body, mind and spirit. Their goal was to win the coveted Village Victory Cup for their community. The valiant winner displays the trophy throughout the entire year until a new victory is claimed. This event inspires participants to commit to fitness and wellness throughout the entire year via a number of events and classes. The Village of Oakland Woods captured the Village Victory Cup in spite of fierce competition! The Village of Oakman Manor seized the Spirit Award!

The Village of Oakland Woods won the 2019 Village Victory Cup.

Resident Spotlight: Helen Our residents spotlight shines on, Helen, a resident of The Village of East Harbor for many years. Helen was very active on the campus. She participated in the Village Victory Cup up until her 101st birthday! Even though she had limited eyesight Helen won medals shooting in the hoops competition. Helen loved theme parties and dressed up for every one of them! You would always find her with her Best Friend Dorothy guiding her to every event. On her tenth birthday she was given a 100th birthday balloon at a local restaurant; and the balloon ended up in the air. The next day it was spotted 2.5 miles in the treetops next to her apartment. We couldn’t believe the miracle. Sadly, Helen passed away recently; but her legacy lives on in all of us for an Aging Well Attitude!

The Council provides direction and policy recommendations on how to permeate PVM with a culture of Diversity and Inclusion. This includes mandatory training, education and information as well as selfassessment by every staff member.
