Cultivate: A Word from Christie

Friends of Tabitha,

One way or another all Nebraskans are connected through agriculture. After all, one out of four jobs in the state is linked to the industry, and if you didn’t grow up on a farm or ranch, chances are you know someone who did. Because of this, it’s safe to say there’s a good understanding about growing something out of nothing.

When you think about it, we spend our lives cultivating—raising families, fostering friendships, furthering our education and building careers, businesses and communities. Tabitha is no exception; we continuously nurture relationships with Seniors, their families, physicians and industry experts to ensure we’re meeting and exceeding the wants and needs of those we’re honored to serve. And let’s not forget the generous donors, dedicated volunteers and committed Tabitha TEAMembers who make it all possible.

I am so proud of the quality, award-winning services Tabitha provides and the long legacy of serving as Nebraska’s trusted provider of Senior Care. Nonprofit Tabitha exists to assist you and your family not just one time but as your needs evolve; we’ve developed a continuum of services designed to provide seamless transitions through the aging journey. It’s a responsibility that Tabitha embraces, and we look forward to cultivating with you—serving as The Answer for Senior Care for years to come.

Inspire(d),

Christie
