THE CALLING

Since 1947 Christian Care Senior Living Communities has provided seniors with spiritual, physical, and recreational programs that forge relationships.  Christian Care Senior Living Communities, a faith-based, not-for-profit provider currently serves more than 1,500 seniors annually on three campuses in the Metroplex.  The oversight of our services is provided by a volunteer Board of Trustees, which is comprised of Godly men and women from diverse backgrounds, but united in vision to ensure that the Mission and Vision of Christian Care Senior Living Communities is always at the center of everything we do.

CURRENT CALLINGS

LEAVING A LEGACY
The master urged us to invest our treasures in those purposes which will outlive us.  Naming Christian Care Senior Living Communities in your Wills and Estates fulfills this heavenly challenge in a meaningful way.  Your legacy will live on in ministry to seniors who might otherwise be forgotten.

MEMORIALS/HONORIUMS
There are times in our lives when a simple “Thank You” just cannot fully express the gratitude we feel for someone whose life has impacted us.  A memorial and/or honorarium gift to Christian Care Senior Living Communities not only commemorates your honoree, but also enhances the lives of the residents.  Consider the scope of this type of gift and the opportunity it gives your honoree to be a part of Christian Care Senior Living Communities’ great ministry.

ARMY OF CARE
Committed donors have supported and sustained Christian Care’s ministry since 1947.  The current Army of Care Program has been designed for you to always remember the residents of Christian Care Senior Living Communities.  In addition to traditional donation methods, we offer the convenience of recurring bank drafts and credit cards for your gifts, which may be arranged through the Advancement office.

FESTIVAL OF TREES GALA
As many as 5.3 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, a devastating dementia for which there is no cure.  Treatments for symptoms, combined with appropriate services and support, can improve quality of life for millions of Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.  The annual Festival of Trees Gala, which began in 2009, raises awareness and provides funding to enhance and expand Alzheimer’s care and programs at Christian Care Senior Living Communities.

BLACK TIE AND BLUE JEANS BENEFIT DINNER
Lakewood Village in Fort Worth opened in late 1982. This campus now serves over 500 senior adults. The 4th Annual “Black Tie and Blue Jeans” Benefit Dinner raises funds for Memory Care and special projects to benefit the residents at  Christian Care Senior Living Community – Fort Worth, Lakewood Village.

HONOR FENCE PANELS
The Honor Fence will provide the opportunity for residents and their families along with our employees and supporters to honor those they love with a name insert panel in the existing perimeter fence at our Mesquite and Fort Worth campuses.  Along with your honorarium, your tax deduction donation will benefit Christian Care Senior Living Communities by providing funds for beautification and resident service projects on our campuses.

NORTH TEXAS GIVING DAY
