We are so grateful for our UMC family! Your partnership allows us to continue offering abundant life to all of the older adults we serve, even in these uncertain circumstances. We know that the weeks ahead will be filled with challenges, and the interrupted routines and necessary changes will be tough on our residents and associates. Your care for them is truly appreciated, and your prayers and support are much needed.
Here are a few things you can do:
- Making a donation will have the largest, most immediate impact. Online donations are fast, easy, and safe and can be done at foundation.umcommunities.org/donate.

- UMC’s frontline associates are real life superheroes, going above and beyond during this COVID-19 pandemic to serve with the creativity, compassion, and dedication our seniors deserve. The United Methodist Communities Foundation is focused on doing all we can to support these heroes, and we need your help.
