HOUSING SELECTION PROCESS

We look forward to welcoming you soon into this marvelous community.

Pilgrim Place seeks to offer housing to persons that meets their personal needs and desires and, whenever possible, during their desired year of entrance. In general, the following procedure is followed when a housing opportunity is offered to and accepted by an Applicant.

One year prior to desired year of entrance, the Director of Admissions will contact the Applicant to start the selection process. 

When a housing unit becomes available, the Applicant will be contacted based on their stated housing preferences. Upon receiving a housing offer, the Applicant may either:

1. immediately refuse the offer or

2. proceed with receiving an information packet about the offered unit. The Applicant schedules an on-campus visit as soon as possible (within two weeks of the offer) to see the unit.

Upon accepting the unit, the Applicant pays the equivalent of one month’s rent plus 10% of the selected Entrance Fee as a deposit. Applicants choose from two Entrance Fee options: either a Non-refundable Entrance Fee (a one-time non-refundable fee based on square footage and amenities of the residential unit) or a Deferred Repayment Entrance Fee (a one-time fee based on a higher rate per square foot and amenities of the residential unit with 50% payable to one’s estate upon reoccupancy of the unit). Information provided on the Financial Information Form determines whether an individual or couple may be eligible for the Month-to-Month entrance option. 

Upon paying the deposit, the Applicant meets with Buildings and Grounds staff to make interior selections as described in the Basic Preparations for Houses/Apartments document.

When Buildings and Grounds staff determine that the residence is ready for occupancy, the Applicant signs the Care and Resident Agreement and Privacy Statement, pays the remainder of the Entrance Fee, begins paying the Monthly Fee, and arranges a move-in date. The Entrance Fee must be paid in total by the move-in date. 

New residents are assigned a Mentor, introduced in the dining room, and encouraged to participate in the many campus activities.  In addition to the monthly Pilgrim Place NEWS, each week residents receive a full page of announcements of upcoming events and opportunities for involvement.

Residents in need of storage space may contact local storage companies for more information on rental terms and rates.  Pilgrim Place has very limited storage space for residents.

Future residents may want to explore Pomona Valley Hospital or San Antonio Community Hospital.  Many residents appreciate knowing about Inter Valley Health Plan.

Pilgrim Place's 2014 and 2015 Audited Financial Statements are available here.
