    Inland Christian Home Celebrates 40th Anniversary

    Posted September 15, 2018 in News

    On September 15, 2018, Inland Christian Home held a 40th Anniversary Celebration at the Double Tree in Ontario. The event was attended by approximately 200 persons and the program included dinner, time to reflect on past events, the people involved, and on God’s Faithfulness. The future plans of Inland Christian Home were also reviewed. In 1978, Inland Christian Home admitted its first residents. This was the culmination of 6 ½ years of hard work by a determined group of people and the beginning of 40 years of providing quality, affordable, individualized care for seniors in a Christian environment. On September 9, 1971, 39 people attended an information meeting at the First Christian Reformed Church of Chino for those interested in investigating the possibility of starting a facility that would provide Christian care to the elderly of our community. A Board was soon formed and a non-profit corporation set up. In 1973 9.75 acres of land was purchased on Mountain Ave. However, in 1976, after 5 years had passed since the initial meeting, many began to think that the idea of starting a Christian retirement home would never materialize. Governmental regulations seemed insurmountable, architectural plans were drawn and redrawn, and financing was a major problem. In 1976 a financial plan, which included raising $400,000 (equivalent to $1.8 million in 2018) in donations was implemented. The Board resolved that they would seek guidance from the Lord Jesus Christ through prayer and if the financial plan did not meet its goals they would discontinue their efforts. In September 1976 $436,204 had been raised and Inland Christian Home was off and running. Although there have been difficult periods, God’s faithfulness and the support of the surrounding community has always been evident. We praise God for his blessings and we thank all of Inland Christian Homes friends both past and present, including founders, board members, ladies auxiliary members, employees, residents, families, volunteers, and financial supporters.
