Help us continue a tradition of caring

Since 1944, Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home has provided quality assisted living to lower income seniors, many of whom had no other housing alternative. Sanborn Home is the only "licensed home for the aged" in St Clair County and the only senior residence with a mission to serve lower income individuals. It is important that we preserve this important community resource.

Your gift provides warmth, safety, and comfort

Funds donated to Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home are used to support low-income residents who are unable to pay for services and who, many times, have no where else to reside. These dollars help Sanborn Gratiot residents like Wayne:


Wayne is a senior gentleman who, due to a number of health concerns, is at high risk of contracting COVID 19.

When Wayne found himself in danger of becoming homeless due to a loss of income related to the COVID 19 pandemic, Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home was able to step in and provide Wayne with a safe, healthy place to live at no cost to him thanks to the generosity of those who donate to Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home.

Sadly, Wayne is not alone. There are a lot of other seniors who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless as a result of the pandemic or other life circumstances.

Due to the great need in the community, SGMH has dedicated two beds for use exclusively by those in such emergent situations.

Donors like you can make a difference in the life of a senior like Wayne.

At Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home, sadly, we receive referrals, similar to Wayne’s, all too frequently.

Will you please consider making a donation to Sanborn Gratiot Memorial Home to support our mission and ensure that seniors in need, like Wayne, have a safe place to live?
