Ministry With the Aging Inc., dba Cathedral Gardens Senior Living Apartments
Matching Funds Available
Cathedral Gardens Senior Living Apartments is a project of Ministry with the Aging, Inc., an independent non-profit organization, providing affordable housing in a caring environment for low income elderly (62+) or disabled persons. The need for affordable senior housing in our area is great and growing greater every day. Since January, 10,000 Americans are turning 65 years old every day. This daily growth in our senior population will continue for the next 19 years. In addition, the number of persons aged 65 to 74 who live below the poverty level in Dallas is 17.9%, nearly double the 9% rate for the entire state of Texas. Cathedral Gardens has been a senior housing resource for 35 years, dedicated to maintaining a supportive atmosphere in which each person is valued and has an opportunity to contribute their talents to enrich the lives of all here. We greatly appreciate the beneficence of a caring community in helping us fulfill our mission to Dallas' treasured seniors.
Having served as a vital resource for senior affordable living for more than 36 years, both our residents and facility have been subject to the ongoing effects of aging. Alongside the need for programs and amenities to enhance our residents' life enrichment, comes the need to maintain a safe, secure and fully functional physical property. It's fun and satisfying to host and contribute to parties, craft sessions and exercise programs. At the same time, however, it is vital to have funds to rebuild fencing, increase security lighting/monitors and repair foundation issues. All of these are among current needs at Cathedral Gardens.
