Our Commitment to Diversity

Our resident population is ethnically and culturally diverse, as is our staff. It is the goal of all Ladies Home employees to make our residents feel comfortable. Many of our employees are multilingual, and many of our residents appreciate being able to communicate with our staff in languages other than English. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, color, sex, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, or disability.
