Non-Profit Faith-Based Difference

Many things have changed since our beginning in 1962, but one thing hasn’t– we remain a non-profit, faith-based organization.

The Commons’ partnership with the Oklahoma United Methodist Conference supports our community with representation on our Board of Directors. We encourage and support a strong faith culture among the many denominations and belief systems represented by our residents, family members and staff.

As you consider options for senior living, it is important to understand how non-profit communities stand out among all of the choices available to you. While we are committed to the highest standards in our business practices, we are focused exclusively on our mission rather than profits. We believe that our residents, their families, our employees and our communities all benefit from our non-profit status.

Additional positive benefits of our non-profit commitment include:

  • If we end a year with excess revenue, it is reinvested in the community to improve the quality of services we offer rather than being distributed to shareholders
  • We are governed by a volunteer community board made up of local business and civic leaders, rather than by a group of investors
  • Decisions are based on our mission, not on strategies designed only to generate profits
  • Customer Satisfaction and Quality of Care guide our organizational decisions, rather than increasing revenue.
