Life's Garden Senior Housing

Life's Garden

Life’s Garden is a Seniors' resident apartment complex built by Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church with HUD financing. In the 1970's the congregation, under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. J. Bruce Coleman, realized the need to provide reasonably-priced housing for senior citizens.

A group of church members established Sunnyvale Life, Inc. Out of that corporation came Life's Garden, a 208-apartment retirement community that opened its doors in 1976 to people aged 62 and older. Residency is not limited to church members; it is open to people of all ethnic and religious backgrounds. Residents reflect the cultural diversity of Santa Clara County.

Each resident lives independently in a studio or one-bedroom apartment and enjoys dinner meals served Monday through Friday. The services of a social worker are provided on site without cost to residents, allowing them to connect with the services needed to age in place. Assisted living care, however is not available.

Life’s Garden is known for its atmosphere of caring and community. Residents say that they feel safe and secure there. Residents, the staff, and Friends for Life volunteers from the church plan classes and activities to meet the social and spiritual needs of the residents. Amenities include an activity room with an adjacent beauty salon, a library, and a computer room.

Though built through the vision and efforts of members of our church, Life’s Garden continues to be an independent, non-profit corporation. Its operations are, however, overseen by a nine-member volunteer board of directors selected from the membership of Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church. The church family has been loyally supportive of Life’s Garden since its origin.
