Highlights and Mission

Caring is our Calling

Mission

Through the belief in the power of a faith community, EHM provides innovative services and solutions to individuals, no matter where on life’s journey they may be.

Our core purpose is to be a faith-based organization, called to provide quality care with compassion to our residents and clients we serve. 

The Evangelical Homes of Michigan Foundation was incorporated in 2016 as a 501(c)(3) to support the work of EHM Senior Solutions in providing health care and an array of housing and home-based services to older adults in our community. With its purpose to encourage charitable support for the people, programs, and projects, the Foundation provides stewardship of donor resources while honoring clients, team members, and volunteers.

My mother had two amazing young women working with her while she was at Evangelical Home – Saline. They have gone on to become RNs, and I still keep in touch with them. We were so blessed.
