Covia promotes positive aging by cultivating healthy and engaged communities with a continuum of innovative services that actively support intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being.
We will be widely known as a trusted resource for aging well.
Honor our heritage.
Our mission and principles to serve seniors as a nonprofit provider of services and housing have been shaped by the values of welcome, inclusion, social justice and grace that come from our Episcopal heritage.
Respect one another.
We believe in working together, civility in our differences, and treating one another with dignity at all times.
We reflect, celebrate, and foster the diversity of those who live and work within the Covia family and society as a whole.
Serve with integrity.
Strong ethics are at the heart of who we are and how we operate the organization today and tomorrow.
We are committed to expanding our mission by bringing our innovative and collaborative programs and housing options to a larger community of seniors with a wide spectrum of financial means.
To ensure we can continue to fulfill our mission, we are careful stewards, balancing today's needs and resources with tomorrow's needs and opportunities.
