My Neighbor's Keeper Initiative
My Neighbor’s Keeper began in 2015 as an outlet for the associates of Weigand-Omega Management and Omega Senior Living to serve their local communities in meaningful ways across the nation. Our Advisory Board is made up of employees who steer company-wide initiatives that are carried out in each prospective community that our staff live and work in.
At the heart of our family-run business is the basic principle of caring for the needs of others, regardless of what setting that is fulfilled in. We believe strongly in the principle of good stewardship, both personally and corporately, and we believe in giving back to the communities we live in and work in. We invest in people, not just programs, and we are motivated to improve and enrich the lives of others by contributing our time, effort, skills and capital to this mission.
On December 25, 2018 we were officially granted a Trademark from the USPTO for My Neighbor’s Keeper. We have a Service Mark in Class 35: “Administration of a program to promote community service among employees within our company to give gifts, time, and talents to make the communities they live and work in better.”
