Since 1951, we have been providing Christ-Like compassionate care for the elderly through tangible acts of love in all areas and levels of care. We promote family living values and build on our residents strengths and interests. We are governed by a board of directors from our supporting churches in the area & we are open to all people regardless of race, color, or national origin. 

 

Our Mission

To provide a continuum of high quality services to the faithful members of our supporting churches and to the community.

Our Vision
