Campbell-Stone Apartments

Campbell-Stone Apartments provides affordable housing apartments for older adults, with two locations in Buckhead (north of Midtown Atlanta) and Sandy Springs (20 miles north of Emory). 

Site Work

Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and some weekend services and events. As the semester progresses, weekend hours may be expanded, including participation in Sunday Vespers. Ongoing flexibility to work at least some hours on weekdays will remain important so that interns can fully participate in the life and rhythm of the community. 

Site work will be in person. Covid vaccine required.

Students will choose one of the two site locations and arrange schedules in coordination with the supervisor. Students will work to develop spiritual care and community programming for residents, including pastoral care, worship opportunities, and group activities. Students will work mostly in person with residents at the two sites and may have an opportunity to help develop digital and remote spiritual care programming for our in-house television network.  

Interested students may also have the opportunity to work with residents who speak Korean, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and a variety of other languages.

Site Mission

The Campbell-Stone retirement communities serve as advocates for older adults by providing housing, services, education, and involvement in the community-at-large. We maintain an environment that enhances quality of life, encourages personal development, and promotes mutual respect for all of its participants, staff, and other constituents. 

About the Site

Sponsored by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Georgia, Campbell-Stone is made up of two apartment complexes for older adults with an emphasis on affordable housing. One community is in Buckhead, and the other is located in Sandy Springs. Persons of all faiths and ethnicities are welcome here. While the Buckhead area is often perceived as an affluent neighborhood, the 345-room apartment complex located in Buckhead has a heavy emphasis on affordable housing. The Sandy Springs apartment complex has 190 apartments, including one floor of Personal Care. The average age of residents at the two complexes is 79. 

Out of the 600 residents of the apartments, each student is assigned a "parish" of approximately 60 persons. Students meet the residents one-on-one throughout the year. Small group leadership is also a possibility. In the second semester, students have leadership in one worship setting and visit “parishioners” if they are in the hospital or a rehabilitation center. The site allows students to do their visitation on a fairly flexible schedule.
