The Board of Trustees of St. Michael’s Home have announced the kick-off of a $25,000,000 Capital Fundraising Campaign designed to facilitate the purchase and rehabilitation of an 11 acre property located in Uniondale (Hempstead), NY. On the site is a 90,000 sq ft building which will be the new location for St. Michael’s Home, and include independent and assisted living apartments, as well as dementia and nursing care facilities.
His Grace Bishop Andonios, the Director of St. Michael’s Home, said that “With the purchase of this property, we enter the most exciting chapter in the history of this wonderful Archdiocesan institution. The need to expand our facilities and services and help even more of our elderly is a sacred mission. This is an enormous undertaking, but with blessings from above and the generous support of the community, we will achieve our vision.”
The property was purchased at a cost of $7,000,000, and the complex will include 26 one-bedroom independent living apartments, 46 private assisted-living bedrooms with private baths, and a unit serving clients with dementia as well as a section with nursing care beds. The Capital Fundraising Campaign will raise funds to pay off the purchase price of the property, as well as completely renovate the current building on the site.
“For well over a decade, the Board of Trustees has been aggressively searching for an appropriate site to expand our mission and serve more elderly at higher levels of care. We are especially indebted to a long-time friend of the Greek Orthodox community, His Excellency Bishop Murphy of the Rockville Diocese, for his great assistance in making this purchase possible,” stated Haeda Mihaltses, President of the Board. The Rockville Centre Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church was the prior owner of the site.
