It takes a community to keep ours thriving.

Chicago Methodist Senior Services is able to provide our services and residences to the community in large part thanks to donations from our generous supporters. Your gift helps to make our work possible.

Throughout the ongoing pandemic, CMSS faced many hurdles but they have been no match for the resilience, creativity, and hope we have embodied this year. We have not only survived, we have thrived. Learn more about our recent accomplishments and our vision to become the gold standard in empathetic, safe, and innovative memory care services in our 2021 Impact Report.

We ask that you partner with us to sustain our critical work and to make our new vision flourish.

Together, we can help Chicago’s older adults to live and feel well. Make a tax-deductible donation today. Thank you for your support!
