May 2018

Longtime Christian Living Communities friends Dick and Marilyn Anema. Marilyn was one of the first female board members.

Commemorating the Beginning
Last week, Christian Living Communities marked our 46th anniversary as we celebrated Founder’s Day with birthday cake and a special breakfast for friends, board members, leadership and others who have invested in the mission of the organization.

It was May 7, 1972, that our first community, what is now known as Clermont Park, opened its doors and began offering love, respect and compassion to older adults in Denver.

“The Christian Living Campus was always intended to be, and always was, equally open to those from other traditions if they were in need of the services provided," is an appropriate quote from Elmer Houtsma, the first Nursing Home Administrator for The University Hills Christian Nursing Home, now part of Clermont Park and the birthplace of Christian Living Communities.
