What we do

Here for you, every step of the way.

Red Bench is more than just a long seat made for sharing. Red Bench is a mindset; a state of mind where a set of select values are cornerstone to our service and the communities we are committed to serving.

With passion comes emotions and life. This passion runs red in our hearts and the hearts of our residents. We share this treasure with one another and find that the physical Red Bench is also shared.

First and foremost, the Red Bench is a meeting place, and as the definition states, is used by more than one person. If we see a team member, resident or guest sitting on the Red Bench alone, we know that it is a signal that they have something to share. Whether something good or bad, we are there for each other. Secondly, Red Benches are used as wayfinding points to mark points of egress during an emergency. Lastly, the Red Bench is home – Home to the passion within all of us and home to our community. Welcome home.
