Community supporters gathered at the Country Club of Lincoln to celebrate and raise funds for Lincoln-based nonprofit and Elder Care industry leader, Tabitha.

The annual Signature Event resulted in over $200,000 worth of contributions to benefit the newest Tabitha Residence, Harbor House. This innovative model of living provides skilled nursing and long-term care in a residential-style setting for our Elder friends and neighbors.

Harbor House is nestled lakeside in south Lincoln’s beautiful Williamsburg neighborhood and serves up private suites and exceptional care for residents. It neighbors Tabitha’s successful Cove House and is Tabitha’s eighth living community of its kind. At Harbor House, seniors are supported to live lives of independence and individuality, giving them the ultimate freedom of choice. Tabitha’s renowned quality of care in these family-oriented communities has resulted in better clinical outcomes, reduced hospitalization, a decreased occurrence of depression and loneliness and unprecedented satisfaction among older adults who are proud to call these Tabitha Residences home.

“It’s because of generous donors that we’re able to continue to innovate and serve the ever-growing needs of Elders,” Tabitha Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning Joyce Ebmeier said. “With the community’s strong support, we ensure that Tabitha’s mission lives on.”

Tabitha is ever grateful to major sponsors for making the event possible including AMPT, Lockton Companies, Dr. Rod and Debbie Basler, Bryan Health, Immanuel, Kidwell, Assurity, Cline Williams, among many other corporate and individual sponsors.
