Welcome to ABODE

ABODE provides a welcoming, peaceful home and unconditional loving care to our guests through the compassionate service of our community and volunteers.

Our Vision

Dying is a sacred time of life. Love, compassion, and a home matter to all who are dying; those whom we honor and from whom we learn. We serve the community as an educational resource in the art of contemplative living and dying.
We know you will be delighted to see that the New Year is beginning with the grounds at the ABODE site being leveled, roughed in for plumbing, and made ready to pour the foundation. The beautiful trees on the property have been given special care to help them do well through the construction. According to the schedule, framing will begin next week.

 Going by every day to see the progress of ABODE's new home, taking photos, meeting the workers, it's fantastic to see and imagine what's next as the house starts taking form. 

It is happening because so many are contributing their compassion, love, and generosity of spirit, and are committing financial resources to build the home, and fund operating expenses. Thank you!

In the meantime, you'll be happy to know that the search for an executive director is going well, and we hope to hire an ED to start part time in March. There is much to do!

We appreciate your prayers, good wishes and financial support as we look ahead to opening in the summer, to welcome ABODE's first guests.

With gratitude,

Edwin Sasek
Founder and Board President
ABODE Contemplative Care for the Dying
P.S. Have you been wanting to meditate? An interfaith meditation group sponsored by ABODE meets Mondays from 5:30-6:30 PM at Viva Bookstore, 8407 Broadway. Beginners are welcome. In it, we explore meditation as a dimension and practice of contemplative awareness. Join us anytime.

Your donation is most welcomed!
