Malachi House, created out of a Christian sense of ministry, serves persons who are terminally ill, without regard to gender, race, religion, or national origin and without cost to the resident or family. This home ministers to individuals who need an available caregiver, who have limited or no financial resources and are in need of special home care in the final stages of life. Our trained staff and volunteers provide spiritual, emotional and physical support with the assistance of a hospice team.

THE MALACHI HOUSE CHAPEL WINDOWS
The rays of sunrise/sunset project life beyond our comprehension. They represent the comfort of heaven; the lines go up to infinity.
The iris, or sword lily, represents the sorrow of the Virgin at the suffering of Jesus, demonstrating both beauty and pain.
The prisms throw rainbows into the room, the symbol of promise for lives filled with the mystery of suffering. They are like magic –sometimes there and sometimes not. They interact between heaven and earth, with nature and God.
The river represents life; it takes us places that we sometimes don’t want to go. Life’s hardships are shown through the twisted turns that eventually take us back to the rising sun, the Resurrection.
The colors – blue, purple and violet – represent heavenly truth, imperial power and sorrow. Green represents the triumph of spring over winter, life over death. The golden sun is representative of healing, and the white spaces reflect innocence.

A RESIDENT STORY
Christine has a gentle nature and a deep connection to Malachi House. She is quick to tell you how much she loves it here. A staff member recounts a touching moment when caring for Christine: she clasped the staff members hand and thanked her for everything that they’ve done and for the way everyone has treated her.
Christine is a transgender woman and is happy to share her story with others. She feels this will help raise the visibility about transgender people. Christine is proud of who she is. Being transgender was not a decision she made, but who she truly is. It hasn’t always been easy for Christine to be herself but she says her life circumstances have allowed her to open up and become the person she is today.
Christine enjoys recounting her life. She was born in Germany and moved to the states when she was 7 years old. She spent the majority of her life doing home construction and electrical work. Christine has always had a soft spot for those in need. She proudly remembers a time in her life when she was able to help people with home repairs and even opening her home to them if needed.
Christine loves music and even played in a band when she was younger. A talented musician, she played the drums, guitar, and keyboard. Her favorite genre of music is Rock-n Roll and she loves The Bee Gees and The Beatles. Throughout her life she also enjoyed cooking, traveling and painting. Now that Christine is at Malachi House she enjoys looking out her window and watching the people walk by.
At Malachi House, we care deeply for all of our residents. We are honored to be a part of Christine’s story.
