Our “Community Report” highlights some of the achievements of the Myron Stratton Home over the past year.
Our Seniors Program continues to offer accommodations in both independent living cottages and apartments and assisted living residence to very–low income seniors in a warm, pleasant environment. The Home’s total capacity is 114 seniors. Winfield House, the only facility in the region totally dedicated to those who qualify for Medicaid, provided 9,493 days of service to our seniors, an 82% occupancy rate in 2020. Our independent living program provided 29,930 days of service, a 98% occupancy rate. On a daily basis approximately 107 residents enjoy the serenity and comfort that the Home has to offer.
Our Grants Program, an extension of our philanthropy to the greater Pikes Peak Region, awarded $661,000 in grants to 29 agencies in 2020. These grants expanded each agency’s capacity to serve critical human service needs of low income seniors, families and children.
The Stratton Consortium, consisting of Peak Vista Community Health Centers, Partners in Housing, TESSA and the Myron Stratton Home celebrated its eighth year anniversary. By locating these agencies on the Home’s campus, the Home as able to expand its mission and vision to serve poor single mothers with children who are in need or crisis and working toward self-sufficiency. A true collaborative spirit has evolved with each of these agencies working together to serve this very vulnerable population. The Consortium provided services to over 17,800 individuals in 2020 on our campus.
2020 was a challenging year for everyone. We are grateful that we were able to work through the events of the year and continue to provide much needed services to our community. As we look to the future, we continue to reflect on the timeless mission of the Myron Stratton Home – caring for those less fortunate with compassion and dignity. It has been our passion since Winfield Scott Stratton wrote his will at the turn of the 20th century.
