We Appreciate Your Support

Much of what makes Crown Center a special place for residents and community members is only possible because of our generous donors and volunteers. Thank you for helping us fulfill our mission daily.

Give and Make a Difference

A charitable donation to Crown Center directly benefits older adults in our local community. Your contribution allows us to provide affordable high quality housing and important services to people with extremely limited financial resources. More than just an apartment building, it is the vital services and programs Crown offers that ensure a life of dignity. Your gift is used to provide supportive counseling, transportation, nutritional dining, exercise, health screenings, educational programs and group activities to all, regardless of their ability to pay. A substantial portion of Crown Center residents must live on extremely low incomes, under $14,000 per year. Often faced with difficult choices about how to best spend their limited dollars, your gift allows us to help them to successfully manage these challenges. Our goal as a non-profit 501(c)3 agency is to assist older adults in maintaining an independent lifestyle. Your charitable gift to Crown Center is greatly appreciated. Please contact Andy Thorp, Executive Director, 314 991 2055 or for more information.
