D. of Acadia. 

The Villages of Youngstown, Cereal and Empress as well as the Hamlet of Acadia Valley lie within that broad rural ranch and farm land area and are also served by the Foundation.

The Mission:
The purpose of the Foundation is to provide affordable room and board for senior citizens who are functionally independent with the assistance available through existing community-based services and who would not otherwise be more appropriately provided for in a health care facility.

Compensation will be in the $80 - $100,000 range dependent on qualifications and experience with a standard benefits package.
