You Can Impact the Lives of Older Adults

As a non-profit organization, Christian Living Communities depends on the generosity of residents, families, and friends to help fulfill our mission of enriching the quality and dignity of life for older adults in our not-for-profit owned communities. Last year through tax-deductible donations such support helped provide services and care to more than 1,000 older adults daily.

Ways You Can Make a Difference

  • General Mission supports the most pressing needs of the organization while providing the greatest flexibility. That has included training, enhancements for specific communities and supplementing other funds if necessary.
  • Resident Assistance provides financial help to qualifying residents who, through no fault of their own, have outlived their financial means.
  • Employee Scholarship funds the development of team members through tuition assistance so they can pursue their dreams. This benefits them personally and also the organization as a whole as they upskill.
  • Team Member Critical Needs offers emergency grants for qualifying team members who need extra support for housing, transportation or medical expense shortfalls.
  • Community Enrichment provides community-specific enhancements that enrich the lives of the older adults who reside there. Examples include concert series, art classes, gardening and technology that promote spiritual, intellectual, physical and social opportunities.
  • Chaplain Program allows CLC to offer paid chaplain internships as well as general support for enhanced chaplain services.
