You Can Help Fargo Elim Return Home

On January 23, 2020, life turned upside down for the Fargo Elim family when our care center was lost to a fire. Residents had to move and settle into other care centers all across Fargo-Moorhead. Staff abruptly lost the jobs they loved and the residents they loved serving, and had to find work elsewhere. Fargo Elim’s leadership team heard the same statement as they checked in on residents, families and staff: 

“I want to come back. Fargo Elim is my home.” 

The old, 1960s building was home, but it was far from perfect. We are grateful for the opportunity to rebuild and create a cutting edge community, complete with private rooms and a stronger neighborhood model. It will have the warmth, homey-ness and amenities older adults need to thrive. Through the incredible generosity of local community members and businesses, $650,000 has already been raised. Because insurance only covers what was lost—a 1960s nursing home—we are still facing a gap in funding. Will you give today?
