Cuppa Compassion Coffee Club

Join the Club

Something as simple as a cup of coffee can remind us of the blessings we have… a safe home, good food, and kind friends to help us through life’s ups and downs. But when older adults experience financial difficulties and have no one to turn to for help, life can quickly become filled with complications that threaten their safety and well-being.

That’s why you’re invited to join The Cuppa Compassion Club – a unique and dedicated group of individuals committed to making sure older adults receive the help they need through The Good Samaritan Fund. Through a simple, monthly gift you can help a senior adult receive nutritious meals, compassionate nursing care, and a peaceful night’s rest knowing they are safe and loved.


Special Events and Invitations

You’ll be invited to gather a few times a year (we’ll provide the coffee!) to see how you’re a blessing to older adults and learn how you’ve made a difference in their life in a significant way. Members also receive:

  • A special coffee club welcome package with a members-only coffee cup
  • An invitation to a complimentary annual breakfast and coffee/tea tasting with the CEO
  • An invitation to any additional club gatherings during the year (these vary from year to year)
  • Special recognition in publications (with your permission)
  • The knowledge that each gift, given faithfully each month, is making a tremendous difference in the life of an older adult in need!

Become a Member

Become a member of The Cuppa Compassion Coffee Club with a simple commitment of $25 or more each month to The W. James Oakley Good Samaritan Fund.

Together, club members gave more than 300 days of life-sustaining nursing care, meals and a home to older adults in need last year. That’s a lot of compassion!

A message from Kris Awtrey, CEO of Presbyterian Manor, Inc., regarding Coronavirus:

I would like to take a moment to give a brief update on the preparations that
Presbyterian Manor, Inc. is taking in regards to the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19).

Presbyterian Manor and the House of Hope’s number one priority is the safety of our residents and staff.

COVID-19 has not been diagnosed at Presbyterian Manor or the House of Hope. However, for our residents' safety we are suspending all visitation in the Perkins-Prothro Healthcare Center and the House of Hope campus. We are also asking that guests only visit our independent living area if it is necessary for the health and/or well-being of the resident.

We are monitoring this situation closely and have already implemented steps to help prevent the spread in our community. We are in close contact with the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC. If there should be any confirmed reports, we will implement even more stringent infection control procedures immediately.

Again, please be assured that Presbyterian Manor is doing everything possible to keep our residents safe. We ask that you remain vigilant regarding this matter and if you have any questions, please call me at any time. Thank you again for your understanding during this difficult and concerning time.
