The faithful support of people like you brought the Deaconess Abundant Life Communities from 1889 to the present. Generous, sacrificial givers like Mr. Charles Emerson in 1910 and many others since then have made it possible for the Deaconess to bring creative, compassionate care forward into the 21st century. Our future is being created today by both the gift of time and resources from friends, residents and their families, employees, churches, local businesses, and other organizations. In each of our communities, we strive to nurture the mind, body, and spirit in an environment of dignity and respect for the lifelong contributions of our residents. Join us in this important work — your gift does make a difference!
