OLDER ADULTS, HUNGER / FOOD SECURITY, ADVOCACY

Florida Christian Center

Jacksonville, FL

We are called by God to serve older adults and persons with special needs as a living witness and response to our Christian faith. The Florida Christian Center provides activities and pastoral care to more than 300 residents in three buildings. Sundale Manor Apartments and Florida Christian Apartments provide subsidized housing for senior and disabled adults. The Edgewood Condominiums is also a senior community on site.

The FCC seeks to serve these adults by honoring the body, mind, and spirit. With a full-time Activity Director and full-time Chaplain/Executive Director, we provide an array of services for our residents, including transportation to appointments, to the grocery, and to other outings for special events and socializing. Our exercise room and therapy pool, as well as our health and wellness classes (including yoga), help residents keep moving and maintain physical health. Our weekly worship services, chaplain visits, classes, and study groups help residents maintain spiritual and emotional health.

We are a unique community who got our start through the National Benevolent Association of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the early 1920s. We depend on the support of the community to carry out our mission and are grateful for donations to keep us thriving.
