About Us



Welcome to Christian Care Home


Our success is due to the dedicated ministry of the Christian Woman’s Benevolent Association (CWBA).  Since 1899, the  CWBA has been providing exceptional care for men and women of all faiths.


As a licensed, full-service, 150-bed, Skilled Nursing Facility and 28-bed  Residential Care facility, we also offer long-term and short-term stays including rehabilitative, respite, and dementia care.


Christian Care Home is licensed and certified by both federal and state to provide care for private pay residents and also residents insured by Medicare and Medicaid.  Those in Residential Care may be eligible to obtain assistance from a state funded program.


People Caring For People


In 1899 a group of concerned women led by Fannie Hamilton Shedd Ayars organized efforts to care for impoverished mothers and their babies.  A home for children from newborn to age two and their mothers was established, Mothers and babies Home.

In 1903 this same group of women recognized the need for more extensive medical care of the mothers and babies and they established Christian Hospital of St Louis.  While the hospital was opened with the needs of mothers and child specifically in mind, the hospital served people of all ages.  Always looking for ways to help people in need, in 1911 these women opened the Christian Old People’s Home.

Now with three facilities, in 1911 the women formalized their organization as the Christian Women’s Benevolent Association (C.W.B.A.). The organization provided consultation as well as financial and spiritual guidance to the Mothers and Babies Home, Christian Hospital of St Louis, and the Christian Old People’s Home.

The children’s mission of the C.W.B.A. changed in 1962 to provide resident care for the wards of the juvenile court system of Metropolitan St. Louis. The Mothers and Babies’ Home was converted to CWBA Youth Home. 

In 1975 a new facility for the Christian Old People’s Home was built at 800 Chambers Road in Ferguson, Missouri.  Also in the 1970’s the Christian Hospital of St Louis was sold. Some of the proceeds from that sale were used by the CWBA to expand the Christian Old People’s Home and to build new facilities for the Youth Home. This ministry was discontinued in the 1980’s.

As we entered our second century of caring for the poor  and the sick, CWBA embarked on building a new state-of-the-art facility to house both the Christian Care Home and Harnett Christian Village residents.  Our facility is licensed and certified by the state of Missouri.  Residents receive around the clock care from an expert staff of registered nurses,  licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants.
