Fort Scott, KS –
The Presbyterian Village in Fort Scott is one of 18 Manors across Kansas and Missouri. Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, the parent organization, is celebration 65 years of service this year. The local Village has been in our community for over 22 years.
The Village is truly a remarkable resource in our community. Their mission statement is: “As a Presbyterian Manor or Mid-American Community, we provide quality senior services guided by Christian Principles.” “This is truly what sets our services apart,” said Director, Ginger Nance. “We see caring for people as a ministry and I believe you can tell that as soon as you enter the doors.”
Nance is clearly passionate about her service at the Village. She has a personal relationship with each staff and resident on site and is involved at every level. The big project she is focused on is “Founder’s Day,” a large celebration on April 21st. It’s open to the public and is a major fundraiser that helps the Village, a non-profit, continue to offer services.
Many aspects of the Village are open to the public. There are many “lifelong learning” classes for residents, but open to the public. Also, in the upcoming months, they are hoping to operate a small bistro / coffee shop open to the public and families visiting. Nance is always looking for volunteer speakers on just about anything from creative classes to finance to Bible studies.
The Village has 45 apartments, both single bedroom and double bedroom, with covered parking option. They are licensed for 62 people and are set up for both independent or assisted living scenarios.
