A Home That Endures (Jan. 2024)

By Mark Zawacki

One of the most treasured things about home is the sense of privacy and space it can instill. During the early days of the COVID pandemic, privacy and space was even more important for minimizing the risk of spreading the virus.

In Heritage Christian-supported homes, we want everyone to feel like they are truly in their own home, even if they share it with other people. That means giving people their own living spaces, wider hallways for wheelchair access, and rooms such as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms that are accessible no matter what physical needs a person has. We want people to have forever homes, that can support them no matter what may come.

Space is a key component of safety in a home. Even though people are sharing homes with one another, we must ensure that everyone has the space they need to be safe and maintain their privacy.

Making these physical changes to the home is a significant investment. Our Homes with Heart campaign is committed to raising the funds we need to make those changes, and while we are thrilled to be at $8.2 million in donations at this time, we still have quite a distance to cover. The continued support of our community partners and your stewardship can help us cross the finish line in the coming months!
