Who We Are

Atria Cares is a public nonprofit organization that provides emergency financial assistance – not loans – to qualifying Atria employees who are faced with financial hardships due to unforeseen and often tragic events in their personal lives.

It is primarily funded by employee payroll deductions and individual donations. Atria funds all administrative costs of Atria Cares and makes contributions in support of Atria Cares charitable activities, including the Ronnie Boatman Scholarship program.
