Capital Campaign

Calvary Homes is seeking help to improve privacy, dignity, and choice for senior adults. To this end, we have undertaken major renovations which will provide enhanced services and quality of life for today’s and tomorrow’s seniors. We are calling the campaign to raise funds needed to help complete these improvements the “Caring and Preparing for Today and Tomorrow” campaign. Since starting the campaign in January 2018, we have reached Capital campaign gifts and pledges of $1,495,910 with 278 donors and 74% of our goal.

.We praise God and deeply thank the donors who have made this progress possible. We ask you to join these friends of Calvary Homes and help us reach our full goal.

Ways to Make a Difference

There are several ways you can improve the life of seniors for generations to come:

Crichton Chapel

People in chapel

In honor of Dr. Eric Crichton’s longstanding service to Calvary Church and Calvary Homes over a span of nearly 57 years, Calvary Homes’ Board of Directors has recognized Dr. Crichton by naming our new chapel, Crichton Chapel, in honor of his outstanding service to God and our local community. The dedication of Crichton Chapel was held on Sunday, November 24, 2019 with nearly 200 in attendance. The video of the dedication service can be found on YouTube: Crichton Chapel Dedication.

Calvary Homes constructionDr. Crichton’s ministry included service as senior pastor of Calvary Church for 23 years. With retirement, Eric and his late wife Dorothy, moved to Calvary Homes and continued their service to the community in a variety of roles. Eric continues serving to this day, 34 years later! Those desiring to make a tribute gift in Dr. Crichton’s honor should include “Chapel” on the memo line of their check and mail to Calvary Homes, 502 Elizabeth Drive, Lancaster, PA 17601.  They may also use the DONATE BUTTON at the top of the Donate page (click here) to make a gift or pledge in honor of Dr. Crichton noting “Chapel” in the “Write a Note” box.
