Una's Place of Hope
A Christian Senior Center and Ministry
What Makes Us Special
Una’s Place of Hope is dedicated to providing an abundance of love, joy, caring, sharing, and special treatment to our Seniors. Our Mission is Providing Excellence in Serving Our Seniors! It is our goal to give our Seniors every attention, comfort, kindness, and protection they can possibly receive during each visit; as they celebrate the Golden and Treasured years of their lives.
Una’s Place of Hope is established in memory of Una Wilhemina Miller (nee Norton), who spent fifteen years as a recipient of Adult Day Service. Una’s Place of Hope honors, celebrates, and cherishes her life as both an Early Childhood Educator spanning fifty years, and a Minister of the Gospel for thirty years; a life which was greatly enriched by her giving back to others what God had infused in her.
The name Una is derived from Latin, and means “One.” The word Hope is defined as "a feeling of expectation for a certain thing to happen." Una, our Mother lived her life with Expectation, Purpose and Hope in God.
Una’s Place of Hope was founded by Denise Mariette Woods, (Nee Miller), the fourth child of Una; to honor her Mother’s life and earthly mission. Denise, while living in New York, served in the capacity of caregiver to her Mother for several years, before Una's passing in 2016. Denise who also serves the elderly here in Indianapolis, Indiana both in the Hospital Chaplaincy, and Ministry fields, made a promise to God, to her Mother, and to herself; that she would honor and celebrate Una’s life of excellence, by spending her remaining years serving Senior Adults: Our Treasure!
The Vision of Una’s Place of Hope, is to provide an environment which equates to a home away from home, thus giving families the assurance and confidence that their loved ones are celebrated; served with respect and dignity; are in a safe and comfortable environment where our Seniors are given much, much love.
Welcome Home Seniors!
Due to the COVID-19 surge, Our Center is now focused on Community Outreach to Seniors and the Elderly.
