Shorehaven Cares About Community

The Shorehaven Campus works to serve as a vital community partner. Shorehaven employs about 400 employees and is home to 400 seniors. The organization is the sixth largest employer in Oconomowoc, works as a strong City, County and State partner, is a productive Chamber member and community advocate. Shorehaven is not only a leader in providing progressive senior services, but serves as an industrious force in providing for its communities. Shorehaven takes its social accountability role seriously.

Shorehaven donated more than 130 lbs. of food to county pantries to provide meals for the less fortunate through the Waukesha County Food Recovery Program.

Shorehaven lends its warehouse property to Feeding America, a jointly sponsored church outreach supplying thousands of pounds of food annually to needy families. Food is dispersed monthly October through March, then moves to a city park for summer and fall.

Shorehaven residents and staff create mats for the Mats for Humanity homeless bedding project, providing a warm, dry mat for those inhabiting rescue shelters and for those living on the streets.

Shorehaven lends its lakeshore to the LaBelle Yacht Club Sailing School, where both lake and non-lake residents learn to sail Opti’s and compete Wednesday nights. Families gather to talk sailing, grab an ice-cream at Café LaBelle, and recall sailing memories with residents.

From the Forgotten Treasures Resale Shop, Service League volunteers set aside medical supplies for the Lake Area Free Clinic, unsold furniture for St. Vincent DePaul and clothing items for St. Jerome’ overseas wellness kits for women.

Shorehaven also provides funding to staff pursuing continuing education through tuition and scholarship programs. This also ensures quality care for our residents. The Campus also provides clinicals and classrooms for Certified Nurse Assistant and RN training programs.

Shorehaven staff facilitate the Youth Apprenticeship Program at local high schools, focusing on health care. The organization also donates extra medical supplies to various charities in the United States and the world.

Shorehaven is Medicaid certified, and accepts state funding for residents who have outlived their assets, which is usually much less than the private pay rate is.

Shorehaven is a dedicated community partner, striving to better the lives of lake country seniors and their families.
