Our History

“To enrich the lives of active aging adults by empowering each individual to flourish through a holistic approach of the dimensions of wellness within a nurturing, Christian environment.”

For over five decades, hundreds of families have been blessed by this ministry. Today, there are two modern communities in the metro Atlanta area.
