Social Accountability

Charitable ministry is at the heart of everything ABHOW does.

Creating wonderful homes for people means creating a community beyond their front door. It means serving the members of that community any way we can, and reaching even further into the surrounding towns and cities to affect a positive, healthy change. At ABHOW, we honor this social commitment by leveraging our resources and sharing our strength.

Our goal: To touch as many lives as possible. Our strategy: To put our tax-exempt dollars to work. That strategy is paying off big. In 2014 the tax benefits that the company received as a result of being an exempt organization came to nearly $8.9 million. During the same period, ABHOW provided more than $20.5 million in community benefits, which include Medicaid adjustments, resident discounts and benevolent care.

And that translates to a very real and lasting impact in the lives of people, from the continuing care residents who remain in their homes after economic loss, to the many seniors given rehab therapy and health screenings free of charge, to the medical students who’ve received invaluable geriatric training benefiting generations to come.

We document our charitable ministry annually. These reports are in PDF format below. If you do not have a PDF viewing program, click here to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
