Our Impact

Our mission is guided by our four pillars. These principles serve as guidelines for our commitment to supporting our residents in their most urgent time of need.

Four Pillars of Support for the Rose Villa Foundation:
  • Residents who find themselves in financial need can continue to live at Rose Villa while maintaining their well-being, dignity and independence.
  • Support for programs or workshops about technology, financial planning, making end of life decisions, and much more.
  • Residents will have access to resources needed to locate a trusted financial planner, consult with legal counsel about legal matters and find respite care for family members with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
  • Operational grants can be leveraged for specific improvements that enhance the quality of life for residents at Rose Villa.
What does community living mean to you? We hope you share our vision of learning, growing, and supporting each other. Rose Villa’s tight-knit community embodies a philanthropic spirit and helps people to thrive.

Farmers' Market

Early summer through early fall, the Tuesday Market is open from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. every Tuesday (or as long as supplies last) -- and is chock full of beautiful home grown vegetables, seasonal fruits, fresh flowers and an abundance of delicious homemade baked goods.  The market is entirely run by the Rose Villa resident gardeners and bakers. All proceeds directly benefit the Rose Villa Foundation. The Tuesday Market is located on Rose Villa’s Main Street. The season and harvest influences when the market officially opens each year, so check with us for details.
