A Lasting Legacy for Fair Hills and the Seniors We Serve

                                    

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28. 

The Fair Hills Residence and the Illinois Presbyterian Home is a not-for-profit and is supported by Presbyterian General Mission monies, gifts from individuals and churches, and memorials and bequests. We invite you to help us in meeting the future needs of our facility with its ever-increasing operating costs, major repairs, and necessary expansion through a gift or bequest. 

As a not-for-profit mission of the Great Rivers and Southeastern Illinois Presbyteries, our rents are subsidized by our endowments, which helps us keep our rents more affordable than other facilities in the area. 

As a 501 (c) (3) not for profit organization, donations to Illinois Presbyterian Home are tax deductible. 

Join us in our mission to honor God by providing the highest quality of care that promotes independence and to provide supportive services ensuring we serve the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of seniors.
