Our Mission St. Paul's Family Resources exists to provide a comprehensive program of care to meet the needs of those seeking our services in the greater St. Paul and east metropolitan area. We strive to embody God's love for all and are dedicated to the well being of our clients, their families and our staff. Letter from our President I am pleased to provide you with this update on the efforts of St. Paul’s Family Resources (SPFR), including those of Oak Meadows, St. Paul’s Church Home Board, and St. Paul’s Family Resources Foundation, to fulll our mission of improving the lives of seniors and assisting their families. As has been our tradition, this report includes a thank you to all of our generous supporters as well as the 2013 year nancial results. We face the future trusting in God’s empowering love. 2013 was a year of signicant milestones in our history of serving seniors as well as a year of preparation for the future. Oak Meadows celebrated 15 years of providing its tenants with “a dignied, caring and affordable” home that “embodies God’s love for all”. The Memory Garden was dedicated and throughout the year, Oak Meadows’ tenants and visitors enjoyed the outdoors in this safe and accessible space. Oak Meadows’ strong nancial performance in 2013 made it possible for its Board to make the Chaplain’s position full-time, further enhancing tenant life. The long-anticipated sale of the St. Paul’s Church Home was nalized in December, 2013, thanks to the dedicated efforts, for more than seven years, of its Board. In 2014, its Board will seek to discern the best way forward to serve seniors in need. St. Paul’s Family Resources Foundation’s expectation of a stronger nancial position in 2014 led it to reinstate its Heritage Grant program designed to help churches in the Minnesota Conference of the United Church of Christ better serve seniors in their congregation through grants to start or enhance programs. The Foundation also continued to support the work of its SPFR partners with funding and contributions. During 2013, SPFR Inc. served as a forum for increasing communication and improving collaboration among the SPFR partners. Presentations on the competitive landscape and challenges for the senior housing industry provided SPFR Inc. board members with information they will need to develop new strategies for serving seniors in the coming years. In 2014 we look forward to building stronger connections with the United Church of Christ’s Minnesota Conference and CHHSM. On a personal level, I wish to thank all of those who serve on the boards of the SPFR Inc. partners giving so generously of their time, knowledge and wisdom. We are thankful for your support that helps to make the good work taking place within Oak Meadows, St. Paul’s Church Home Board, and SPFR Foundation, as they seek to fulll their missions, possible. Please contact me if you have any questions. We face the future trusting in God’s empowering love. Barbara J. Peterson, President St. Paul’s Family Resources, Inc.
