  • A Letter from our President 

    Many of us at St. Mary feel our work is a calling from God. Others simply find great joy in helping others. St. Mary is a special place to work because we combine our passion to serve others with sophisticated business and technical expertise. That's one reason we're considered a thought leader in the field of social determinants of health for older people. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for older people with low incomes, and we've been focused on that goal for more than 33 years.
    Whether you work in real estate development, resident services, finance, asset management, or resource development, you'll find working at St. Mary extremely rewarding. Job descriptions often don't capture important questions like "what is it really like to work at St. Mary," and "who are the people you serve?" Below is information that will be of interest to you if you're considering working for us. It includes what our team members and partners say about us, as well as a summary of benefits.
    If you have any question, always feel free to reach out to the hiring manger, or me. My phone is 937-277-8149 x210 and my email is tbete@smdcd.org.
    God bless,

    "When I first came to St. Mary Development, I just wanted to help seniors. I have stayed with the company for the last 8 years because their mission isn't just to serve older adults, it is to serve but also to advocate for change on a scale that allows all older adults the opportunity to age in place with the dignity they deserve. It has been my privilege to do the work I love, for a company that truly cares."

    “St. Mary provides a work environment that is both challenging and rewarding. You are able to thrive in your position with a supportive management team to help along the way; granting opportunities to employees to help further advance an ever-expanding company.“

    Victoria Romero, CAM

    "I truly can't think of anything that would make it better. I like feeling like I am making the world a better place, and I firmly believe we do that every day. The staff works (and plays) together well and everyone is rowing in the same direction. The lack of ‘office politics’ is possibly the best thing--while the days aren't always stress free, it's not negative, soul killing stress."

    "I like working for St. Mary or I wouldn't have been here 26+ years."

    "I would honestly say that this is one of the healthiest work environments I have ever worked in."
