Council for Health
and Human Service Ministries
CHHSM is the Council for Health and Human Service Ministries of the United Church of Christ, a community of leaders and organizations committed to advancing the healing and service ministry. Its 73 corporate members, including Beatitudes Campus, operate 363 communities and programs providing health care and other services to children and families, to people with disabilities, and to the aging.
Beatitudes Campus is a continuing care retirement community that provides a warm, comfortable and engaging lifestyle to older adults in the heart of north central Phoenix. Conceived as a place where people could live, learn and grow through all the days of their lives, our founders dreamed of a “campus” environment, borrowing the term from the educational community because of its sense of continual growth and vibrancy. Beatitudes Campus was among the first to introduce the concept of continuing care and quality retirement living, and proudly lives our Mission each day to offer a wide spectrum of services and a model of wellness that promotes soundness of mind, spirit and body for older adults.

From grocery shopping and transportation to medical appointments, to health promotion activities and support groups, Duet’s one-on-one assistance helps older adults and their families cope with challenges related to aging.
