we envision

our mission

To enrich the quality of life by inspiring greater well-being in every individual.

The Goodman Group, a privately held company, manages senior living and health care communities, residential communities and commercial properties that provide homes and services for more than 10,000 residents and employment for over 4,000 individuals. Together, we strive to carry on Sidney and John Goodman’s legacies of leadership, growth, kindness, entrepreneurship and innovation.

At The Goodman Group, we recognize and affirm that well-being must take into account each individual and the particular identities, life stories, strengths, goals, experiences, challenges, and any other qualities that make us unique. Well-being also depends upon psychological safety, security, accessibility, space for personal expression, and a deep sense of belonging for every individual.

Our vision is thriving communities that last for generations.

We believe that a truly thriving community not only embraces and values diversity, but also intentionally builds in inclusive and equitable practices to ensure the growth and sustainability of our organization and each managed community.

Diversity, Equity, Belonging, and Inclusion are thus core elements in achieving The Goodman Group mission and vision.
