Why Give

Your generosity helps support Light of Hearts Villa mission of providing premier senior residential living and community outreach services. Our mission calls us to use our faith-based values to affirm the integrity of each person and encourage them on their journey of aging.

There are up to 90 seniors living at Light of Hearts Villa. In addition, outreach services connect with more than 400 other seniors annually living in and around Bedford, Ohio, most of whom live near the poverty level, are alone and are homebound. Without these critical services, including benefit assessment, care coordination and transportation, they would have no one else to turn to.

Your generosity also helps support the Sr. Helen Scasny, SC Benevolent Fund, which is designed to uphold the mission of Light of Hearts Villa by providing funding to support those residents who have outlived their financial resources. The Sr. Helen Scasny, SC Benevolent Fund relies on the support of individual contributions, foundations, bequests and other fundraising efforts of the Board of Directors of Light of Hearts Villa.

Light of Hearts Villa is a nonprofit, charitable organization under 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.


Loving and Provident God, you are the one who grants us the days of our lives and fills them with your loving care. We praise you for the many years and countless blessings that you have given. Strengthen us with the reminder that our days are in your hands and our purpose in this life comes from you. Fill our minds and hearts with thankful thoughts, pleasant memories and quiet contentment. Your grace alone is enough for us. Amen.
