The Vivos Risk Management Team evaluates each member applicant's profile for determination and candidacy of their membership. Vivos then looks for those individuals who may best contribute to each Vivos shelter community, for the greatest chance of long-term survival of the entire group. Each candidate is reviewed based upon a number of criteria and psychographic information, including: their profession, education, expertise, skills, benefit to the Vivos community, proximity to a Vivos location, current health, and desired family or group ownership. Vivos then selects certain candidates and extends them an invitation to purchase an interest in a specific Vivos shelter closest to their home area. Those candidates are then provided the Vivos reservation agreement to make a reservation for one or more co-ownership interests in a Vivos shelter. Due to the cohabitation of owners, a rigorous screening process is necessary, however, discrimination of any sort is not be allowed or tolerated, nor a means of qualification, including that based on age, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, national origin or sexual orientation.
