Hosanna Community Chattanooga

Hosanna Community

The Impact You’ll Make:

Blind since birth, Susan lived with a foster family for over 40 years. When that arrangement was no longer an option, she had few choices that would allow her a good quality of life. In 1998, she came to live at Hosanna, where she has her own room, attends church weekly, volunteers twice a week, and enjoys attending local musical events. Similar to most of our residents, Susan is on a fixed income. Donations allow our residents to receive financial aid and enjoy a modest rent due to substantial monthly subsidizing of Hosanna’s operating costs. Learn more
