Because no senior should ever have to travel life’s journey alone!

Mr. Harry, a U.S. veteran,  lost everything in a devastating house fire. Now homeless, he took up temporary housing in VA transitional home. Somehow he found his way to a Wesley Housing Corporation of Memphis community.

An on-site staff member visited Harry to check on how he was faring is his new home. The echo in his apartment was a telltale sign that something was amiss.

This is a picture of Mr. Harry’s bed! Two well-worn crumpled sheets of cardboard and a trash bag filled with newspapers were meant to provide him rest.

This was a perfect opportunity for Golden Cross to fulfill its mission to enhance the quality of living of senior residents of Wesley Housing Corporation of Memphis. Golden Cross turned the generous donations received daily into blessings for Mr. Harry. A new proper bed, chest of drawers, a small dinette and a love seat were delivered to his new home. Fortified with a “Move In Kit” and a month’s worth of non-perishable food, Mr. Harry’s home was quickly transformed from basic shelter into his sanctuary.

That is what you get to be a part of by contributing to Golden Cross, because no senior should ever have to travel life’s journey alone!

A heartfelt reaction from a senior served…

Thought you might find this excerpt of a letter from a person you helped with your amazing generosity. This “thank you” will really touch your heart and confirm why assisting our ministry is such a worthwhile endeavor:

“Dear Golden Cross Senior Ministries,

Simple words fail to express the joy in my soul. The kindness, caring and compassion you demonstrate may not be measured in dollars and cents. Thank you, thank you to your patrons, thanks you to all who work for your exceptional organization.

I recently moved into (A Wesley Living Community). I had little food, taking my meals on the floor. A beautiful one bedroom apartment, that was clean as can be. I worried how I was ever going to keep it clean with simply a rag and a bar of soap. My clothes were soiled and needed to be washed.

On September 18th, my doorbell rang and (a Wesley Living staff member) along with my Service Coordinator came bearing food, cleaning supplies and everything imaginable to start my new life…That afternoon a beautiful sofa and dinette set arrived, I was overcome and wept openly. (Much to the dismay of the moving men!)

I thank you for all these gifts. Please be aware, what I realize now, the most important gifts you gave me were a sense of dignity, self-respect and a renewed feeling of hope in what was a new chapter in my life.

Please thank all who give to your ministries. Assure them they are touching the heart and souls of seniors like me. I am a better, kinder, more loving human being than I was before. God bless all of you…”

Thank you all for helping create this heartfelt reaction!

Congratulations to the great folks at St. Joseph Village in Dyersburg!
