Relationship Centered Living


Impelled by the Mission of Jesus

“that all may be one”, drawn by His example of unioning love, we live and

work guided by these principles:


Respect each person’s dignity,
uniqueness, and spirituality


Embrace a culture of healing presence

for mind, body and spirit


Empower each person toward positive health and wellness


Encourage each person’s ability
for self-determination and purposeful living


Honor and respect the voices of all who live and work in this community


Recognize all behaviors as opportunities for wholesome communication and relationship building


Cultivate and nurture interrelationship with Earth: source of life, renewal and healing


Celebrate what is right with the world

CSJ Initiatives was created to assist in the management and development of independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities to address the health care needs of the Congregation of St. Joseph’s aging sisters and others.

















Focusing on providing care in the unique lens of religious life, CSJ Initiatives has grown to own or manage twelve centers located in six states.  In addition to the ownership/management of these Centers, CSJ Initiatives provides consultative services to those that are strategically planning for their future.


In a manner that honors the culture of those we serve, CSJ Initiatives enables the Congregation of St. Joseph to preserve and extend their ministry to others by recognizing that there are needs that cannot be fulfilled alone due to an increasingly complex regulatory environment or the shortage of available expertise.

By providing expertise in caring for elders, CSJ Initiatives has established a dynamic model of life giving care for those residing in a Center.  Termed “Relationship Centered Living”, this model, integrates the needs and values of those we care for in a manner that honors the individual preferences in a homelike environment.
