Our Mission & Vision

Our vision is for all older adults to have the opportunity to age in community—to live a full life of connection and purpose in a dynamic, supportive environment.

Mission
Inspired by Jewish values, 2Life Communities welcomes seniors from all backgrounds and enables aging in communities of engagement, connection, and purpose by:

  • Providing superior housing that is broadly affordable.
  • Continually evolving support services to meet the needs of our diverse residents as they age.
  • Building connections and community within our walls and in our surrounding neighborhoods.
  • Promoting aging in community as a first choice.
     

Values
Since our inception, 2Life Communities has opened our doors to the broader community, welcoming seniors from all backgrounds while being driven by our Jewish values, which guide us to honor thy mother and father (seen as a collective enterprise), welcome the “stranger” as we were once strangers ourselves (including immigrants from many lands), and share across generations (l’dor vador). By providing a supportive environment for our community’s seniors, we help bring forward the wisdom they have accumulated over a lifetime, support their efforts to embrace lifelong learning and growth, and engage in repairing the world (tikkun olam) to be sure all seniors have the basics for living with dignity.
