Plans to Prosper


Our 3-pronged approach to ensuring the future success of Christian Science Nursing at The Leaves.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end." 

Jer. 29:11


Evidence of Growth

The Leaves’ calling is to provide skilled Christian Science nursing to our community now and into the future. We've been making great strides of progress. We've tripled our patient count and quadrupled the number of Christian Science nurse training students. This fall, we’re expecting that our staff housing will be full for the first time in over 30 years. We are sharing this fruitage with you because we need your help to aid in sustaining this progress.


Plans to Prosper

You can help support Christian Science nursing at The Leaves by donating towards our Plans to Prosper Campaign that is fashioned after Jeremiah 29:11. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." Your generosity will give The Leaves the means to progress now and in the future.


Three-Pronged Approach

Our board has been actively praying about next steps. Ensuring that we’re supporting and caring for our community, residents, patients, and staff and their families is our highest priority. We have realized three areas where we need your help:


  1. Building additional staff housing. Staff housing is a draw for us to gain new Christian Science nurses ready and willing to work at The Leaves, and the more Christian Science nurses we can attract, the more patients we can help support. As we attract these new young families of Christian Science nurses, they will need somewhere to live. Currently, we have reached capacity of our staff housing.  This prong of our Plans to Prosper focuses on constructing modern, comfortable on-campus housing that will accommodate our growing staff.

  2. Renovating patient and resident rooms. We currently have bathrooms and tile-work from the 1970’s and 80’s. Patients need to be walked or wheeled through the hallway to a shower room in order to take a shower. We would like to update these spaces to help create a private and modern atmosphere that is better for the patients and for the Christian Science nurses who care for them. Our goal is always to promote healing. This prong of our Plans to Prosper focuses on renovating patient and resident bedrooms and bathrooms, and adding in-room showers/tubs to encourage more private and efficient bathing. This project aims to create spaces that are more functional, spacious, safe, and lovely so we may promote dignity and better serve our patients.

  3. Building a 1500 sq. ft. childcare center onsite for staff. We have around 15 children, aged 12 and under, who would benefit from this - plus one more staff member is currently expecting a child so more are on their way! Offering child care at The Leaves will incentivize Christian Science nurses with young families to work at The Leaves. More long-term Christian Science nurses translates directly into our ability to offer care to more patients in need.
