The Green House® Homes at Legacy Village in Bentonville, Arkansas, are owned and operated by Northwest Arkansas Senior Services, Inc. (NWASSI), a local non-profit organization. NWASSI was formed in 2000 to develop a campus that would meet the diverse housing and service needs of seniors in our community. The first two Green House homes at Legacy Village opened in February of 2009. A total of six Green House homes are planned on the Legacy Village campus. Each home includes 10 apartments surrounding a common area core. All apartments are licensed as Level II assisted living units; 20 of the units will serve low-income seniors through the Medicaid Waiver program. When fully occupied, a team of over 45 persons will serve the elders through a system of self-managed work teams including trained Shahbazim, nurses, and administrative staff. At The Green House® Homes at Legacy Village, elders will be provided with every opportunity for growth and self-determination in an environment that protects, sustains, and nurtures.
