Florence Gardens is an independent residence for seniors. The facility includes nearly 100 cottages and apartments situated adjacent to the Canyon Hills campus. The heart behind this project was to provide a safe and secure environment at an affordable living rate for seniors in our church and community, many of whom are widows or widowers. More than providing a place to live, Florence Gardens offers a community built on friendship and activities which engage its residents.

Moving Forward Together
Did you know that the average age of a widow is only 56 years old? After the death of their husband, most widows lose touch with their network of friends and over half suffer from serious health issues within the first year. These women often experience financial decline and one-third meet the criteria for clinical depression. Many of the women who suffer loss want to connect, but they are unsure how to get started. Moving Forward Together is a new ministry at Canyon Hills that is designed to minister to women who are widowed. We want to connect with you and help you begin to build new friendships. Let’s start moving forward together!
Each month, many seniors with a meager income are forced to decide which necessities to pay for; rent, prescriptions, food, etc. Many seniors struggle to make ends meet and are unable to afford nutritious meals. Senior Sack partners with local food banks to receive bulk food deliveries that seniors can come and receive free of charge twice a month. They also provide a warm cup of coffee and conversation for many who struggle with loneliness. Senior Sack operates out of Florence Gardens, our beautiful independent senior living facility right on the Canyon Hills campus in Bakersfield.
