St. John’s United Servant Partnership Structure

As a mission directed organization, St. John’s United fosters the sharing of God’s healing presence in inclusive community settings. At Richardson Cottage, this is achieved using a Servant Partnership structure, by which living, and recreation is built around the resident, or Elder. In Hebrew, sharath means ”to attend, to contribute, or minister unto, to serve, to wait”. The Sharaths at Richardson Cottage are universal workers that tend to the daily needs of the Elders and promote the nurturing, safe environment of Richardson Cottage. Assisted Living Coordinators supervise the Sharaths and direct the quality of care that Elder are receiving. The final piece of our Servant Partnership structure involves the support team, composed of nurses, culinary staff, and administrators who ensure that the needs of Elders are met.
