How can relatives, friends and tenants, working together, make a good senior adult apartment building become a functioning, viable community? This paper will describe the formation of an innovative family member volunteer organization, Friends of Revitz House (FORH), which offers support and services for the aged residents of Revitz House. The purpose of the FORH group is to enhance the tenants' quality of life and encourage independent living. FORH serves as liaison and facilitator in this process.
