Kendal~Crosslands Communities strives to create an environment for community members, board, staff and volunteers that is welcoming to all cultures, backgrounds and differences; one that promotes mutual respect, acceptance, cooperation and teamwork.  Our commitment to diversity flows from Kendal Quaker roots and our published Values.  We believe that a spirit of inclusion and a culture of diversity enriches and strengthens our communities, people and services.

Over the past decade, the Kendal System of retirement communities has undertaken a concerted effort to increase diversity among community members, staff, volunteers and board members. View a video in support of Kendal’s diversity and inclusion  initiatives.
