As a result of an increasing concern for aging members, Brazos Presbyterian Homes, Inc. was formed in 1961 as a ministry of the Presbyterian Church. This was the beginning of Bayou Manor which was the brain child of Dr. Charles L. King, David Hannah and the First Presbyterian Church of Houston. Dr. King was Pastor of the church at that time and the need for a good retirement home for their aging population had become apparent. In 1972, Bayou Manor found itself with such a long waiting list that the Board authorized the purchase of The Hallmark.
Brazos Presbyterian Homes, Inc. owns and operates two continuing care retirement communities, The Hallmark and Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor. The corporation is operated by an independent, voluntary Board of Directors.
An equal housing opportunity, The Hallmark is a licensed Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) designed for active senior lifestyles, with the security of a full continuum of on-site health care and comprehensive program of other services and amenities.
Lifetime services/occupancy right, amenities, and health care are provided in return for a one-time life residency fee and ongoing monthly fee.
The non-profit status of Brazos Presbyterian Homes, Inc., assures that proceeds from the previous endowments and revenues generated by current activities are returned to its communities, giving them a financial stability that may not exist in an entrepreneurial operation of a similar nature.
Brazos Presbyterian Homes, Inc. exists to serve the senior community with quality living and continuing care in a Christian environment.
