Foss is a non-smoking community.

 

The Not-for-Profit Difference

The most fundamental difference between a not-for-profit and for-profit organization is the reason they exist. A not-for-profit entity has a mission that benefits the “greater good” of the community. All funds are used to further the mission of the organization, and are re-invested in the residents, their care and programs.  Foss’ mission:  Transforming Lives with Dignity and Grace.
