Northfield Retirement Community (NRC) was recently awarded a $1,000 grant from the Union Pacific Community-Based Grants Program to assist in the development of Pathways of Faith Park. The park, located on the NRC campus, is designed to be a community gathering place that will provide space for relaxation, reflection and opportunities for individual meditation. The Union Pacific Foundation, which awarded the grant at a special reception in the Twin Cities, exists to support nonprofit organizations whose projects improve and enrich quality of life in the communities in which Union Pacific employees live and work.

Kyle Nordine, president and CEO of Northfield Retirement Community, said, “We’re very grateful for Union Pacific’s financial support of this important project. Not only is Pathways of Faith Park a wonderful extension of our mission, as a permanent feature of our campus it will surely enhance the well-being and quality of life of NRC residents and their families, as well as the citizens of Northfield, for generations to come.”

Northfield Retirement Community has a 40-year history of providing quality housing and services specifically designed to meet the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of older adults. The organization currently operates or manages seven senior living facilities across the community: Northfield ParkView, SouthView Suites, Cannon Valley Suites, Northwood Pines, Northfield Manor, Evergreen Lodge (memory care facility) and Northfield Care Center. Providing a range of services – from round-the-clock care to minimal home care assistance – the housing options available focus on giving adults, age 55 or older, the assistance they need to lead healthy, meaningful lives.
