Benevolent Care, Church & Community-Based Programs Programs

At the heart of the Community Home Services is our commitment to serving others. Low income persons are eligible to pay for needed care on a sliding scale based upon income. CHS offers many Church and Community Programs at no charge to participants. Benevolence is supported by our five Sponsoring Retirement Communities and through private donations to the CHS Board of Directors Fund. To learn more about how you can support the ministry of Community Home Services through a one-time donation, annual giving, memorial gift, or estate planning contact Diane Tihansky at 215-723-1906 or

Church-based Programs: CHS partners with congregations of all faiths to compliment and enhance their caring ministries.

  • Congregational Health Ministries Training
    Facilitated by a CHS nurse, this free four-hour program addresses the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual issues surrounding illness, aging and disability.

  • Assisting Congregational Members
    CHS partners with congregations to meet the care needs of their members.
Community-based Programs: Faith plays a positive role in a person's ability to cope and "heal" and is incorporated within every CHS Program.
  • Parkinson's Support Group (PSG)
    The PSG is a welcoming and uplifting place for caregivers and persons with Parkinson's Disease to share the struggles and learn more about this illness. Meetings are held at CHS on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m.
    "At the CHS Parkinson's Support Group, we count our blessings, not our losses." — PSG member

  • Clinic at the Table of Plenty Soup Kitchen, Souderton, PA
    A free weekly nursing Clinic is held at the Table of Plenty. While many health issues are addressed at the clinic, this is also a ministry about listening to people who often feel very isolated by society.
    "It is a blessing to have CHS come out here. The nurse keeps our health in check and reminds us that we count in life." — Clinic attendee

  • Food Bank Transportation
    Each month, CHS transports low-income persons to a local Food Bank for groceries and visits with their social workers.
    "Without CHS, I would not be able to get groceries. CHS gives me hope that there are still people in the world who care about me." — Food Bank participant
