Creating an authentic sense of home

At Covia we believe how you live is just as important as where you live, which is why we provide outstanding residential options and community services for you to get the most out of life—wherever you call home.

In over 50 years as a nonprofit, public benefit organization we’ve made a continuous commitment grounded in our Episcopal heritage and values. We believe in helping individuals fortify their own well-being by building strong and engaging communities, connecting people with the services and relationships they need to thrive, and providing compassionate support.

Mission

Covia promotes positive aging by cultivating healthy and engaged communities with a continuum of innovative services that actively support intellectual, physical, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being.

Vision

We will be widely known as a trusted resource for aging well.

Our name

Covia (pronounced co-VEE-a) is a name that emerged from deep consideration about who we are and what we stand for as an organization. The “co” of Covia comes from our belief in the importance of community, of connection, of companionship, of compassion. The “via” comes from two sources: both “via” – the path, and “vita” the Latin word for life. At Covia, we come together on the path of life. We hope you’ll join us on the journey.
