Village Enterprises, an independent 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation, was created in 1996 by Michael Maslowsky and a dedicated group of individuals to improve the quality of care and life available to today’s growing senior population. Beginning in 1999 with its award winning St. Anthony Village, Village Enterprises has developed four facilities in Portland, Oregon. These facilities offer flexible living options to at risk seniors in independent, assisted or memory care environments. Today, more than four hundred seniors reside in Village Enterprises´ villages.
The mission of Village Enterprises rests on the belief in the fundamental dignity and relational need of every person regardless of age, condition or economic status. Each Village aims at realizing that mission through the care it provides and the community it fosters. Each resident, regardless of physical or cognitive limitation, is afforded the care and self determination appropriate to their capacity as well as full access to the rich community to which they belong.
