Open Arms is MAA’s corporate charity and truly the heart of our company. Established in 1994, Open Arms helps those dealing with medical crisis by bringing together what MAA does best - providing homes and taking care of people. Open Arms offers fully-furnished, two- bedroom apartments with utilities, free of charge to guests who must travel away from their own home for medical care. Depending on availability, guests can stay in the home for up to two years if they meet minimum requirements and are actively receiving treatment during that time. It not only helps relieve the financial stress of maintaining a second home near the medical facility but allows family, friends and caretakers to stay with them in their time of need. MAA donates the majority of rents for the numerous Open Arms homes, but it is the fundraisers and payroll contributions from MAA associates that pay to fully furnish and refurbish the apartments, provide utilities (phone, cable and internet access), and cover the remainder of the rent for the Open Arms homes. Every dollar raised gets us closer to helping another guest. Please consider Open Arms in your charitable giving by signing up for, or increasing, your payroll deduction contribution during Open Enrollment or at any time during the year through your Benefits worklet in Workday. Open Arms is a 501(c)(3) charity and your donations are tax deductible. For more information, please visit us at: https://www.maac.com/about-us/open-arms-foundation/
