SEATTLE, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Across the country, homeless shelters, senior centers, and other nonprofit organizations working to improve people's lives often forgo some of the niceties of life just to make ends meet.

Emeritus Senior Living, the nation's largest assisted living and memory care provider, is helping nonprofit organizations throughout the nation bring beauty to their clients by donating art to their cause. Emeritus will give up to 10,000 pieces of matted and framed poster-style artwork per year through its Art Donation Program. The company is requesting applications from nonprofit organizations, senior centers and charities that could benefit from these donations. Applications can be completed at

One recent program recipient is the Poverello Center in Missoula, Montana, a shelter that provides food, shelter, clothing and essential services to the hungry and homeless.

"We feel strongly that everyone deserves compassion and dignity, despite their situation and the factors that led to it," says Eran Fowler Pehan, Executive Director of Poverello Center. "Our mission at the Poverello Center is to help build hope for men and women working to better their lives. The physical environment plays a big role in this; and thanks to Emeritus at Hunter's Glen we can surround these men and women with beautiful artwork that inspires, and that makes them feel good about themselves and about the community in which they live."

The pieces become available when Emeritus renovates one of its senior living communities and orders different artwork as part of the renovations.

"We are continually renovating our communities to make them even better places for our residents to live and thrive," said Emeritus Executive Vice President Jayne Sallerson. "When the artwork no longer fits the decor of the community, we replace it. The old artwork is still in excellent condition and we know there are organizations that might benefit from adding these pieces to their living or community environments."

Emeritus has a tradition of providing outreach to local organizations where it operates senior living communities. "Our Emeritus communities are part of the fabric of greater community life around them in countless ways, such as the volunteer work of our residents and staff and our many outreach initiatives," says Sallerson. "The Emeritus Art Donation Program is part of this tradition."
