Why does Evenglow not-for-profit status matter?

Not having to focus our efforts on the interests of investor’s means we are able to shape Evenglow’s experience around the residents’ needs and preferences. It enables us to focus on maintaining our high standards and strong values, reinvesting profits in the community for the benefit of residents.
