2020: A Year in Review
2020 has been a tumultuous year for the world to say the least. But amidst everything, we’ve been hard at work bringing our vision for Sage Collective to life. This year has been one full of successes and exciting milestones for our organization. So today, we’re taking a look back at the year and sharing our proudest moments:
Launched our website and blog
Sage Collective officially came out to the world with the launch of our brand new website in May. Through the website, we share with our audience who we are, what our story is and what we’re here to do. We’ll also be providing timely updates on Sage Collective programming and residences as each initiative progresses.
The Sage Collective website is also home to our blog, Sage Advice, where we share engaging and enriching original content. Blog topics run the gamut from health + wellness advice to cultural insights for living a more vibrant life. We’ve also interviewed many members from our excellent team, who dispel industry-expert insights into topic s such as advice for older adult caretakers and ways to overcome the challenges of COVID-19.
Kicked off social media
To more directly engage with our community, Sage Collective kicked off its social media identity in the fall. Through our profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, we post twice a week to share insights from the Sage Advice blog alongside other updates on our organization’s projects. There, we’re continuing to build online relationships with other industry leaders, health + wellness institutions, cultural organizations and community stakeholders + members in order to create real, collective impact.
Acquired our first properties
In the beginning of the year, we were thrilled to purchase our first two properties: 4108 South King Drive and 4112 South King Drive in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago. These beautiful and historic side-by-side buildings will become the first manifestation of our vision for vibrant and affordable housing for older adults. Construction on these projects is slated to begin in early 2021; stay tuned for more updates coming soon.
Continued strengthening our team + vision
We wouldn’t be where we are today without our amazing team. The Sage Collective Board of Directors and Leadership Team regularly convened throughout 2020 to further align our vision and upcoming project plans. Together, we bring a collective wealth of knowledge about older adults, senior housing, health + wellness and more to create forward-thinking, innovative strategies for older adult programming, residences and lifestyles.
The successes of this year are just the beginning. We can’t wait to continue learning, growing and doing in 2021 and beyond — and sharing the journey with you.
