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.

"Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey."

With the near completion of the ABODE Home, we are feeling like we have arrived at our goal at last. Now, that same spirit of a caring community that helped us build the home, helps us continue on our journey to begin our real goal...to care for those in need at end of life.

Opening Celebration Coming Soon

front 09.09.2014We are still completing the final touches on our home. We have learned to be mindful of the need to be patient and intentional when finishing the details--after all, God is in the details, Joseph Campbell said. Our Open House Celebration will be on Saturday, September 27 from 2-6 PM. We know you are sure to be there either in person or in spirit. We welcome you!

During the Open House, come and and take a tour of the new ABODE Home at 8619 Post Oak Lane any time between 2:00 and 6:00 PM. We are so proud of the home that YOU have helped build--and we know you will be proud too! Parking is at the corner at MacArthur Park Church of Christ. Shuttle service is also available. Almost ready...

With gratitude,
Edwin Sasek
