Hello Colleagues!

We are pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Green House Meeting and Celebration at the Amway Grand Hotel in Grand Rapids, MI.  This gathering celebrates the many Green House projects growing homes across the country. Mark your calendar for this special gathering you won’t want to miss!  This brochure includes program highlights for your review and registration information. 

This year’s theme, “Meaningful Life, Meaningful Engagement” acknowledges the four Green House Projects open and thriving in the great state of Michigan.  From Pinecrest in the Upper Peninsula to Porter Hills, in Grand Rapids, our host city; from the Villages of Redford in Detroit’s outskirts to the Vern & Lois Boersma Cottages on the eastern shores of Lake Michigan, we honor all of the homes where elders and persons living with disabilities can live lives of meaning and engagement in homes where they are well known.  We honor the commitments you have made and the hard work you are doing to make this vision a reality in your communities.  We hope this experience provides you with the opportunities for the learning, growth, replenishment and fun that you so richly deserve!

Visits to Porter Hills will be scheduled before, during and after the Conference.  Dr. Bill Thomas and dementia care expert Teepa Snow OT/R will join with the elders and staff of many Green House homes to network, share successful practices and spend time building relationships and creating intentional community among Green House adopters.

There will be learning, information-sharing and many networking opportunities for everyone, so come join the celebration! 

Below you will find this years brochure, which contains many details about the Annual Meeting and Celebration; including a preliminary program, logistics information and pre-conference and site visit information.  Please print the brochure to keep for your records.  You will also find the direct link to register you and/or your organization for attendance at The Green House Project 5th Annual Meeting and Celebration: Meaningful Life, Meaningful Engagement.
