What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Project 10:27 was born out of the recognition that the prevalence of loneliness and social isolation is on an upward trajectory in the US, and older adults are particularly susceptible.  Facts About Loneliness & Social Isolation Are Concerning * Many studies show chronic loneliness has clear links to an array of health problems, including dementia, depression, anxiety, self-harm, heart conditions and substance abuse. * Since lockdowns and stay-at-home orders were instated, roughly a third of American adults report feeling lonelier than usual. * The CDC reports that 1 in 4 senior adults are at increased risk for loneliness and social isolation because they are more likely to face factors such as living alone, the loss of family or friends, chronic illness, and hearing loss. * The health consequences of loneliness are often linked to the effects of smoking 15 cigarettes a day * Social isolation is associated with about a 50% percent increased risk of dementia.

Home Bound Seniors Services

Project 10:27 is a non-profit focused on providing one-on-one Christ-centered care to people in need throughout the community. Our name reflects our commitment to this primary mission as stated by Jesus in Luke 10:27 “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Through the development and heavy investment in one-on-one relationships, we offer care to those who are experiencing difficult times in life such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, loneliness, and food insecurity. We have a particular passion for engaging senior adults who are home bound or transportation challenged. We recognize that relationships move at the speed of trust so we are dedicated to building trust by staying in weekly contact with each beneficiary through telephone contact and face to face meetings in their home for conversation, prayer, bible study and fellowship with the goal of connecting each beneficiary to a local church congregation.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Community Engagement Goals

o Ministry desires to grow its client roster to 60 senior adults.
 Ministry desires to increase its annual home visits to 325.
 Ministry desires to increase its annual phone calls to 250.
 Ministry desires to increase its volunteer hours to 450.

o Ministry desires to touch over 1000 new homes in 2022 with door-to-door engagement with its current volunteers and through active growth of its engagement team. Current plans are to move into two distinct SAHA managed apartments on the west side of San Antonio.
 Raymond Rangel Apartments – senior adult apartments
 Villa Verde Mendi Apartments – family units

o Ministry desires to start a new small group Bible study at Christ the King Apartments and possibly (1) additional new zoom small groups for Senior Adults across SA.
 These small groups represent opportunities lonely seniors to meet others their age and participate in active discipleship within a small group and ultimately find a greater sense of purpose in their lives.
 Ministry will seek interested Christian volunteers to lead the small groups and directly disciple senior adults.
 Ministry will engage selected local churches and ask them to adopt this small groups as part of their congregation, creating opportunities to connectivity and more corporate integration of these members.

A critical part of our mission is how we involve individuals, families, and the local church in our work. From the moment the First Church of Jerusalem decided to ask seven people to start making certain that everyone in their congregation had enough to eat, the Church was asked to focus on being a family in word and deed. They had a problem, and they needed a solution, so they adapted their structures to make certain that they were not just talking about loving their neighbors as themselves, but actually doing it. We believe that today’s church needs to be challenged in the same way and must play a key contributor and collaborator role with our work.
By recognizing that local mission remains a fundamental responsibility of the Church, we endeavor to include families and the local church gatherings in our missional work by offering Christians the following:
• Mission focused actions that allow people to use their spiritual gifts in ministry
• Help people grow in their faith by loving their neighbor through one-on-one relationships
• Building up the local church as a caring community
• Offering local missional projects to the local church
To support this mission, we offer the following ways to get involved in our ministry.

Caring Connections Program
The Companion Care Program provides friendly telephone calls from volunteers to our senior adults who are living alone and/or are homebound. The goals of the Caring Connections program are to reduce isolation, loneliness, depression, anxiety, and cognitive decline often faced by homebound seniors. Regular phone calls from volunteers help seniors stay connected to their community and engaged in meaningful relationships. Keeping seniors socially engaged also improves their overall quality of life physically, emotionally, and mentally. We also send cards and letters to our seniors on their birthday and other major holidays, so they know they are part of a family who cares for them

Adopt A Senior
This program is designed for individuals, families, or a small group who wish to adopt a lonely senior adult in San Antonio. Through the adoption process we introduce the volunteer(s) to the senior adult and help them develop a relationship through telephone conversations and face to face visits. We continue to stay involved in the relationship - the volunteer(s) just adds to what we are already doing. By developing this friendship, the volunteer(s) bring joy and conversation to a lonely individual and will certainly be blessed by sharing the love of Christ. We encourage the volunteer to talk by phone with the senior adult once per week and then plan an outing of at least two hours, once per month. Outings can be a visit to the senior’s home, a trip to lunch or a trip to Walmart, a ride to church or many other alternatives. The total time commitment for each adoption is less than 6 hours per month.
