Fairhaven Community Rededication

In November, United Church Homes celebrated renovations at its flagship location, Fairhaven Community, and launched the public phase of the Campaign for Abundant Life, an effort to raise $20 million over five years. UCH and its supporters celebrated the journey at Fairhaven, blessed the ministry and moved the mission into the future as they prepared for this historic initiative. Already nearly $12 million has been raised toward the goal.

“Keep one for yourself as a reminder of how you have witnessed and contributed to the love found here,” said Rev. Beth Long-Higgins, executive director of the Ruth Frost Parker Center for Abundant Aging, during the ceremony. “Take one to share with someone else as you invite them to join us as we grow the community far and wide, welcoming others to participate in the vision of abundant life.”

The hearts then were lifted into the air for a blessing to continue the heartbeat of the ministry that is United Church Homes.
