we need you

Site Director

As you can see from this web site, Holton Home is a licensed residential care home, offering excellent care to 35 elders. We have a great staff, fine programs and a beautiful, well maintained building. Recently, we have taken over management of a similar home in our community and our executive director is spending most of her time there, creating the need for a Site Director at Holton Home. We’re looking for someone who:

  • Has worked in human services or health care, especially with elders
  • Has experience managing and supervising
  • Is kind and approachable to residents, staff, family members and visitors
  • Likes to laugh, loves to connect with others and has a heart for service
  • Shares Holton Home’s vision for being the best place to live and work, and always putting resident needs first

Good News from the IRS!

Bet that heading caught your eye! Yes, we have good news from the taxman. Five years ago, we officially informed the IRS that we meet the criteria to be a Public Charity. We’ve always been a 501(c)3, well, not always – the IRS tax code that created 501(c)3’s was passed in 1954, when Holton Home was already 62 years old!

Anyway, there are different kinds of 501(c)3’s. We had been classified as a 501(c)3 private operating foundation. It takes five years to convince the IRS otherwise. We had to track our income from donations and fees paid for the services we provide and show a series of calculations for each of the five years that proved we serve the public and the public supports us.

And, do you ever! Thanks to our many donors, we sailed through the proving process and recently received word that we are now officially a public charity.

What’s the big deal, you might ask. Here are three ways it matters:

  • A public charity is eligible for more grants from more foundations
  • A public charity has much simpler tax forms to file – that means a real savings in what we pay our tax preparer
  • A public charity pays no taxes on the interest we earn from our bank account. Instead, we can reinvest that money in resident care.

So, we’re celebrating this important accomplishment, and want to thank all of you for making it possible. We are grateful!

It is because of our community of kind friends that Holton Home has been able to provide exceptional service to elders for more than 120 years. Thank you.
