Passport to Travel
Visit Seattle’s Space Needle, enjoy the desert sunrise in Phoenix, or visit the world’s largest living history museum at Colonial Williamsburg — the whole USA is waiting to be explored with the Passport to Travel Program!
The Passport to Travel program—created by United Church of Christ’s Council for Health and Human Services Ministries (CHHSM)—enables residents at CHHSM-related senior living communities to lodge free of charge at a sister community of their choice for up to two weeks. Without the expense of lodging, experience the excitement of new cities and enjoy the welcoming hospitality of places that feel like home—simply for the transportation cost and incidentals.
Ready to pack your bags? Contact the program representative at Abernethy Laurels or visit us online.
Once a Grant-a-Dream application is submitted, the Dream Team reviews the request. Examples of past dreams include baking like the resident did as a young woman or a retired fireman desiring to ride a fire truck as he did 30 years ago.
Anyone can donate to the designated Grant a Dream fund by mailing a gift or visiting us at www.everyage.org/foundation.
