"Reality lives with us. We are the result and called to the vision of community open to diverse paths. A community that is designed to be self governing, provide neighborly support, affordable housing and a physical place appropriate for elders."
ElderSpirit Community Residents Association. Stakeholders Workshop 2005.

"To be a participatory community of mutual support in which all spiritual paths are respected and encouraged."
A new mission statement was created by the ElderSpirit Community in 2011.

The ElderSpirit Community in Abingdon Virginia is the living example of a community of mutual support and late life spirituality. It is the first mixed-income, mixed ownership Elder Co-Housing Community in the United States and in this capacity it is making its way as it "walks the talk."
