We are unique in the following major ways:

    1. The Willows is a residential senior housing community for students of Christian Science.  We are not a nursing facility nor an assisted living institution. We are a safe, vibrant, home for active, independent Christian Scientists. Each of us has our own private ground-floor home. These apartments are not in a large building with rooms off of a hall. They are private apartment homes with individual front doors that open up onto a 20 acre campus. There are over 130 residents living on our campus with a shared understanding of God’s great love as the bedrock of interactions in the community.
    2. The Willows is an active community where people care for each other, but we are not a care facility. This is a planned senior residential housing community, not an outgrowth of a Christian Science nursing facility. This distinction, important and subtle, informs our programing, events, activities, and services.

  2. The Willows is located in southern California – a region alive with cultural, recreational and entertainment venues.  Nearby colleges offer an array of courses and programs, as well.
