Since 1878, the Jackson Friendly Home has provided warmth, safety, and medical assistance for elderly women. Many of the ladies that come to the Friendly Home have experienced homelessness, abuse and neglect, and poor medical support. The Jackson Friendly Home bridges the gap for many of the senior women who believe they have no value. It provides residential care for 45 women who otherwise could not afford the cost of living at other senior housing programs. Many of the residents do not have frequent visitors, so when organizations like Michigan Community Credit Union come to visit, the ladies thoroughly enjoy the time they spend with them. Gatherings such as bingo nights, picnic lunches, and ice cream socials make the women feel special. It reassures them that they live in a home and a community that cares about them and their needs. Continued support of the Jackson Friendly Home will provide the necessary services for a happy and healthy life.
