Everyone should have a roof over their head, especially the elderly.

HI! and welcome to the John George Home.

HI! and welcome to the John George Home.

Elderly men who would otherwise be homeless or in another type of desperate situation have a home at the John George Home.  The John George Home offers low-income housing, food and community service to Jackson’s most vulnerable senior citizens.  100% of the John George Home residents report they are completely satisfied with the provided home like environment.  Bob is just one of many who made this place his home.

Late in 2014 Bob came to the John George Home from another assisted living organization.  He knew he didn’t have long to live due to his end stage lung disease but he wanted to feel more normal and have more freedoms.  When he came to the Home he was accepted and allowed to live out his days full of support, medical assistance and socialization.  He passed away in late January grateful to have had a real Home at the end of his life.
