Our Charitable Mission
Brazos Presbyterian Homes, Inc. exists to serve the senior community with quality living and continuing care in a Christian environment. This purpose demands that the management practices reflect the highest standards in providing services on a sound not-for-profit financial basis, while allowing each resident to maintain an independent lifestyle for as long as possible at the highest level of personal dignity.
Supporting Our Mission
Since it’s inception in April of 1963, Brazos Presbyterian Homes has evolved from a small community of retired Presbyterian ministers and their wives concerned about the welfare of Houston area seniors into two multi-level continuing care retirement communities, Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor (formerly known as simply Bayou Manor) and The Hallmark. Both communities are filled with hundreds of culturally diverse modern seniors from all backgrounds, nationalities and faiths.
There are many ways to contribute to Brazos Presbyterian Homes. Donations by cash, check and credit card are welcome. Brazos Presbyterian Homes is an independent 501(c)3 not for profit corporation in the State of Texas. All gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
There Are Many Ways To Make A Difference
Our board of directors and residents often give back to the community through the donation of their time, efforts and from their hearts. Sometimes those opt to give financially. There are many causes to support through the options below. Your generosity is always appreciated.
Thanksgiving Day – we give thanks. Black Friday and Cyber Monday – we get deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, the charitable season kicks off when charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: To celebrate generosity and to give. Our focus on #GivingTuesday are: The Benevolent Care Fund, Music and Memory Program and Dress for Success Houston.
Our residents are not immune to economic uncertainty. The Benevolent Care Fund has been in place for over 50 years to ensure that no resident will ever have to leave their Brazos Towers home due to financial constraints. Outright gifts or gifts left in memory of a resident are designated to the Benevolent Care Fund, unless otherwise directed by the donor.
Through generous gifts from both organizations and individuals Brazos Towers continues to be a trendsetter in the industry of Senior Living incorporating new and innovative ways to enhance the lives of our residents regardless of their physical capabilities. We are proud to be a Certified Provider of Music and Memory. Learn more here : https://www.youtube.com/embed/fyZQf0p73QM
Dress for Success Houston empowers women who have faced unexpected life challenges to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and life. We are an annual drop off point for handbag donations; however, if you prefer to make a monetary donation, please visit the Dress for Success Houston website.
Brazos Presbyterian Homes takes pride in its staff. A high level of service, enthusiasm and performance can only be maintained when employees are free to focus on their work, apart from emergency situations and related financial issues at home. This fund helps those employees who are experiencing financial distress before the emergency to regain financial stability within a relatively short period of time.
Members of the Legacy of Caring have made a charitable planned gift or have named Brazos Presbyterian Homes in their will or estate plan. Legacy of Caring gifts of any amount qualify for a Legacy of Caring membership.
When a donor chooses not to specify the way his/her donation may be used, this gift is called “unrestricted”. Unrestricted funds are a very powerful form of private support, because they allow Brazos Presbyterian Homes to use them where it finds the greatest need exists.
