Greetings from the President

This is a special year for Liberty Lutheran as we
prepare to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Artman,
one of the founding members of Liberty’s present-day
family of services.

The founding mission for Artman, to be a home for “poor and deserving
Lutherans of both sexes and all ages,” is a historical tenet that continues to
influence the culture of compassion that distinguishes Liberty Lutheran
Services today.

Luanne B. Fisher Today, Liberty Lutheran ministers to nearly 58,000 individuals throughout
the entire life cycle—from infancy to end of life. From Artman’s beginning
President and CEO years in Ambler serving only 21 older adults, we’ve grown to include four
Liberty Lutheran senior living communities, home health and hospice care services, disaster
response services, and a complete range of human services for children and
families in need.
So, not only do we rejoice in Artman’s centennial year, but we also pause
to honor the dynamic and far-reaching family of services that Liberty
has grown to become—a phenomenon that might have seemed like an
impossible dream to Artman founder Enos Resser Artman, who a century
ago, was determined to help financially challenged or aging individuals live
with purpose and dignity when few other options existed to aid them.

Now, thankfully, there are many civic programs and caring communities of
people who help us in our mission to provide resources and sustenance to
vulnerable populations. For instance, a corps of volunteers offers compassion,
friendship and empathy to our hospice patients. Through many small acts of
simple, unhurried graciousness—like holding a hand, reading a story, engaging
in conversation—these devoted volunteers, who range in age from 25 to more
than 65, offer a heartening presence to patients and their families.

I think, if Enos Artman were alive today, he would be amazed at what has
grown from the original seed of kindness that he planted. With the ongoing
support of our donors, friends, families, staff, and residents that seed
continues to expand and blossom every day. We sincerely thank you for your
continued interest and, together with you, look forward to a bright future.

Luanne B. Fisher
President and CEO, Liberty Lutheran

Artman Celebrates 100 Years! (continued from page 1)

While the language of that long-ago headline may
sound stilted to modern ears, the sentiment it
conveys has continued to endure through the years,
starting with the “Decade of Expansion” (1956-
1966) as coined by members of Artman’s Fifty Year
Anniversary Committee.
During this prosperous period, the property saw the
addition of new wings, as well as a new dining room,
kitchen, and cellar.

service models that center on a personalized approach to
nursing, dining and living experiences.
From World War I to the Information Age, through
good and bad, rich times and lean, Artman has been
unwavering in its promise to provide comfortable
accommodation and compassionate care to seniors.
As time progresses, our many valued residents, families,
staff, donors, and friends can feel assured that Artman
stands ready to continue this ever-important endeavor.

Our Physical and Cultural Transformation Continues!

Liberty Lutheran greatly appreciates the ongoing support and enthusiasm from residents, families, staff,
friends, and donors during this exciting and pivotal time for our family of senior living communities.

Artman The exciting wide-scale transformation taking place at Artman is expected to be completed in

2016. In July 2015, the community opened a new short-term rehabilitation unit that represents a model of
best practices in care, service, technology, and design. This will be followed in 2016 with the opening of a new
memory care household, as well as new personal care and long-term care households.

The Hearth at Drexel December 2015 saw the opening of the East Residence at The Hearth at Drexel—an

enclave of 20, new one-bedroom apartments that echo the majestic architecture of the property. Unlike many personal
care communities, The Hearth’s model of care and approach to service enables residents to remain in the beauty and
comfort of their own apartment with all the necessary medical supports if their health should progressively decline.

beautiful common areas for sharing meals, enjoying social activities, and accommodating family visits.

WINTER 2016

Liberty in Action

The Village at Penn State Brings Joy to Several
Families in Need
Residents and staff at The Village at Penn State helped the Christmas
spirit shine bright for 10 families in need. Through a charity drive
called the “Giving Tree,” residents decorated tree ornaments that
identified the needs and wishes of each family. Staff and residents
were then invited to pluck an ornament from the tree and fulfill the
wish—and the Village rose to the challenge! By the end of the drive,
95 gifts were collected and distributed to the very grateful families.

Blue Scarf Ladies Visit Camp Out for Hunger
The Blue Scarf Ladies of Paul’s Run amassed 259 pounds of
donated food to benefit Camp Out for Hunger, a massive food
drive spearheaded by popular Philadelphia deejays Preston
Elliot and Steve Morrison of WMMR 93.3. On December 3rd,
the Blue Scarf Ladies took a special trip to South Philadelphia
to drop off the donations, which benefited the non-profit food
bank Philabundance.

Residents Star in Fast Times at Artman High
Wissahickon High School students served as photographers
and Artman residents were the models during a recent photo
shoot for a 2016 calendar, Fast Times at Artman High. Proceeds
from the sales will benefit Artman’s Benevolent Care Fund.

LCFS’ Expert Insight into Refugee Resettlement
Makes the News
The surge in interest regarding the Syrian refugee crisis led national
and local media to seek expert commentary and insight from Janet
Panning, a Lutheran Children and Family Service Program Director
whose specialty is refugee resettlement. Since September 2015, there
have been 36 mentions in the press of Lutheran Children and Family
Services’ Refugee Resettlement Program. In addition to being a
resource for the press, Janet is regularly sought after to speak to faith-
based and civic groups about the motivations, challenges, hopes and
dreams that compel refugees to flee their countries and build a new
life in the U.S.
