SECURING TOMORROW CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
SECURING TOMORROW: A HISTORIC CAMPAIGN FOR SENIOR WELL-BEING
The Lisner-Louise-Dickson-Hurt Home is undertaking an extensive renovation and expansion project so that we can continue to meet the needs of current and future assisted living residents for decades to come.
Since 1941, the Lisner-Louise-Dickson-Hurt Home has been a leading provider of long-term care for underserved elders in Washington, DC. Every day we work to provide extraordinary health and life care services to low-and modest-income seniors, empowering them to live their lives to the fullest. We offer a wide range of personalized short-term, long-term, and rehabilitative care to a diverse population of men and women on our historic campus in Northwest DC.
In 2020, in the midst of responding to the COVID-19 crisis, the Home experienced a devastating flood which rendered most of the original 1940s building uninhabitable. While basic repairs were rapidly made, living spaces remain unusable for our assisted living residents. We must undertake an extensive renovation of our flooded 1940s building and make it more “user-friendly,” particularly for elders with varying degrees of mobility issues. The renovation of the old building is the first step in a multi-phase, substantive campus-wide project that will deliver significant affordable housing for seniors in a part of the city that has seen next to zero affordable housing additions in recent years.
Simultaneously with the initiation of the renovation of the original building, the Home is partnering with a local developer to build an additional 93 units of affordable, independent living senior housing on the LLDHH campus—allowing us to expand our services to an even larger segment of vulnerable seniors within the community. An approximately $10 million award for the use of the Home’s land to construct this new low-income housing building is coming from the DC Department of Housing and Community Development’s Housing Production Trust Fund. That award money will, in turn, be applied to the overall costs of the renovation of the Home’s original building. Nonetheless, the Home will need to raise additional capital to pay for the full cost of the renovation. An estimated $3 million is needed to close the funding gap and make their dream of a continuing care campus for low- and modest-income seniors a reality.
INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE
The Securing Tomorrow campaign marks a new chapter in our proud legacy of service.
The critical funds raised through our campaign will bring the Home up to 21st century building standards and support the Home’s endowment, ensuring our longstanding success for future generations of seniors: These renovations will include: private assisted living units with kitchenette and bathrooms; fully renovated common areas; upgraded technology and accessibility components to promote resident independence; and, innovative “green/sustainable” elements to improve energy efficiency and air quality.
Renovation and revitalization of the old 1940s building is scheduled to commence in 2023, with a grand opening expected in 2024.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
The Home has raised $17 million in support of vital capital renovations, which will cost a total of $20 million. With the generosity of our supporters, we aim to raise the remaining $3 million or more.
We urge you to join us in this important effort to rehabilitate, revitalize, and reimagine the Home for the future.
