A generous grant from the McKeown Foundation allowed us to create The McKeown Center at Christ’s Home in 2016.

One of the most important initiatives was to create a place for a support group to meet to help families managing with Alzheimer’s. This group has been meeting at least monthly, sometimes twice a month, since The McKeown Center opened. Participants from the surrounding area have found encouragement through these meetings, which are provided at no charge. Similarly, a Griefshare Program now meets regularly to help individuals adjust to life after a spouse or other
