Welcome to ABODE

ABODE provides a welcoming, peaceful home and unconditional loving care to our guests through the compassionate service of our community and volunteers.

Our Vision

Dying is a sacred time of life. Love, compassion, and a home matter to all who are dying; those whom we honor and from whom we learn. We serve the community as an educational resource in the art of contemplative living and dying.

Open House Celebration"We're so impressed, what a beautiful home!"

"It's a dream fulfilled, we're so happy to be part of it.”

“Many blessings on the ABODE home." These were some of the many comments that people wrote at the Open House on Saturday, September 27.

And what a glorious day it was. Filled with rain and sun, friends and family, well-wishers and those who realized they wanted to be a part of this mission called ABODE.

Jane Marie Young, ABODE’s executive director, has met some wonderful applicants for care coordinator and overnight staff, and we have had staff and volunteer training taking place. Although we are still waiting for CPS to connect us with city gas, as you can imagine, there is much to be done as we continue getting ready to welcome our first guest. 

This is indeed a dream come true for many of the board, advisory board, founding members, friends, funding agencies and supporters like you!

As we journey together in the next chapter of ABODE we look forward to many heartwarming and life transforming stories to share.

With gratitude,
