Givens has reached out to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, and communities facing health and wellness challenges since the 1980s. Givens LifeMinistries serves our affordable communities by providing residents access to a community nurse and resident services coordinators. This collaborative housing with supportive services team approach is foundational to keeping residents educated, actively engaged on and off our campuses, and empowered to make life and health decisions that improve their quality of life and keep them safely aging in place.
As the outreach division of Givens Communities, we also actively work in other affordable communities throughout Western North Carolina to address health disparities of underserved, diverse, and vulnerable populations by providing access to resources that empower improved wellness and quality of life. Focusing on whole-person wellness, Givens LifeMinistries partnerships and outreach have helped provide free health screenings, chronic disease self-management programs, nutrition presentations, wellness coaching, and wellness education programs that impact our residents and touch more than 6,000 lives across 13 counties across Western North Carolina annually.
How we help
Through partnerships with non-profit healthcare providers, university nursing programs, Council on Aging, and other community organizations many healthcare challenges can be met. Providing a caring presence and delivering programs in affordable communities across our region eliminates transportation challenges and increases the opportunity for individuals to easily access needed education and services within their own communities, empowering them to experience their best health as they age in place.

As an extension of our outreach efforts, we partner with other nonprofit organizations to reach those who need it most in our community. Supporting our community is the Givens way.
Givens’ spiritual care department supports ecumenical worship and opportunities for growth on all four campuses and expands into the larger community.
Givens respects all residents’ and staff members’ beliefs and spiritual journeys and offers non-judgemental support. Givens supports the spiritual needs of residents, including those at home, in the hospital, or in other enhanced care settings by providing meaningful support to people across faiths who are affected by stress, loss, and death. Our chaplains lead worship and various workshops and are available to counsel and assist families in planning for memorial or celebration services.
