Your Support Makes a Difference

Since its founding, Elim Park has benefited from the generosity of others who believe in the power of our nonprofit mission. Financial gifts make it possible to ensure that Elim Park has the resources to promise a home for life through our resident benevolent fund, continuously adapt health care programming to meet the changing needs of the community, and create fun, flexible programming.
