Since 1960 Grace Lutheran Foundation has been caring for Chippewa Valley friends, neighbors, and families with high quality, faith-based services that respond to a wide variety of spiritual, physical, and social needs.
Residents at Syverson Lutheran Home, our skilled nursing facility, know us for the expertise and compassion that set our physical, occupational, and speech rehabilitation services apart.
Independent seniors know us from the comfort, confidence, and security they enjoy as residents of our five apartment communities. Seniors who appreciate an extra helping hand know us through the abiding kindness, support, and reassurance they find at our three assisted living communities: Grace Edgewood, Grace Willowbrook, and recently expanded Grace Woodlands specializing in memory care.
Cognitively and/or developmentally disabled, as well as aging adults, know us to be trusted caregivers providing a safe, stimulating environment through our innovative and nationally awarded Grace Adult Day Services programs in Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire, and Altoona.
School-age children know the smiles, fun, and excitement we share at our summer camps and before- and after-school childcare programs. Parents, too, recognize the flexibility, dependability, and value our programs offer.
In 1959, Grace Lutheran Church received a legacy from the M.B. (Barney) and Myrtle Syverson Estate in the amount of $360,000. In order to use this gift in the most effective and beneficial way, church leaders incorporated the Grace Lutheran Foundation as a non-profit organization. The Foundation’s original mission was to assist the elderly with healthcare, housing and other services that would help them maintain independent living.
From the vision and generosity of our original benefactors, Barney and Myrtle Syverson, Grace Lutheran Foundation has grown to touch the lives of more than 500 individuals every day as the area’s only faith-based, not-for-profit healthcare organization providing these services.
Unwavering in our mission “…to enhance human dignity and growth…,” we continue to compassionately care for those who cannot care for themselves, relying on the dedication of our staff, the trust of our clients, and the grace of God to extend dignity and respect to all regardless of age, race, color, national origin, sex, religion, or disability.
