Jackson Friendly Home to hold ribbon cutting for modernized facility

MAY 26, 2018 - The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce announced the Jackson Friendly Home (JFH) ribbon cutting on Friday, June 1, at 435 W. North Street Jackson, MI 49202 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. The ribbon cutting is at 9:45 a.m.

“Over the last three years, the Jackson Friendly Home has made substantial progress in modernizing the facility. The addition of our new elevator and generator has been life changing for the women of the home. The new elevator replaces the elevator that was installed in the 1940’s," said Administrator Sarah Slamer-Wasil. She thanked the Weatherwax Foundation, Mary Thompson Foundation, Samuel Higby Camp Foundation, and the Hancock Foundation, as well as Covalle Architectural Group and Collins Design Build for helping realize our vision for this project.


Jackson Friendly Home provides quality assisted living to senior women who have unique circumstances, cannot live elsewhere, and cannot live on their own. The JFH offers elderly women a low-income option to access affordable proper housing, provisions for basic needs, health care, food, clothing, social engagement, and mental health treatment in a home-like atmosphere that encourages independence while also providing the safety and comforts of home. At full capacity, the Home can provide 45 women with the necessary services. Additionally, each resident is provided with a fully furnished private room, housekeeping, memory care services, personal care assistance, life enrichment opportunities, transportation, and laundry services. The Jackson Friendly Home is a 501 (c)(3) organization and is also a United Way supported organization.
