Our History

Christian Care Centers, Inc. is a not-for-profit, faith-based, (501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that operates three senior care campuses in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex providing quality housing and health care services for seniors in North Texas regardless of race, color, creed, religion, or national origin. Each campus is on-site managed with oversight by the Mesquite Campus Corporate Office. Our Board of Trustees is comprised of Christian men and women who serve on a voluntary basis.

Christian Care Centers was founded on April 4, 1947 under the name “Home for the Aged” in Gunter, Texas, as a ministry to retired church of Christ ministers. The old Gunter Bible College housed the first elder residents, who were cared for by monetary donations from individuals and churches, as well as contributions, such as cows, garden produce, pigs, and other necessities, from area neighbors. Later known as Hilltop Haven, it was one of the first area nursing communities in Texas to be certified for Alzheimer’s care.

On Thursday, 4/4/17 Christian Care Senior Living Communities will be celebrating 70 years of serving seniors.  Come see why “Caring is Our Calling.”

Christian Care Senior Living Community – Allen

Without a current location to the North of the Metroplex, a need was seen to add a third campus.  A door was opened by the Greenville Oaks Church of Christ when they gifted 5.1 acres of land to Christian Care Senior Living Communities.  After much prayer and a feasibility study confirming the need, construction began in Allen in 2014.  In 2016 Allen opened it’s doors to include Retirement Living Cottages, Assisted Living Apartments and Memory Care Assisted Living Apartments.
