WHERE DO YOU CALL HOME?

PHILANTHROPY - HONOR FUND

HELPING RESIDENTS STAY WHERE THEY FEEL BELONGING.

The sense of community our residents experience is foundational to their continued health and well-being. That’s why Debbie Cervenka established the Honor Fund, an endowment focused on supporting our residents who encounter financial hardship. With help from the fund, qualifying residents are able to remain in their Ecumen home, surrounded by friends and community.

"When my husband suffered a life-altering injury, Ecumen Lakeshore became home. It was the one place we could find the care Bob’s life depended upon. In meeting other residents of Lakeshore, it was evident that they too had found their home within the Ecumen community. As lives and sometimes people’s resources change, it is heartbreaking to learn of someone leaving the Ecumen community they love, their home, because of financial constraints. It became important to our family to help build the Honor Fund by giving annually as well as leaving a Legacy Gift that will continue to positively touch the lives of others within our Ecumen communities."

— Debbie Cervenka, Founding Donor, Ecumen Board of Trustees Chair
