Supporting WesleyLife Means Supporting Your Neighbors

Support What Matters

WesleyLife has a profound, direct impact on our residents, team members, the participants using our network of home-based solutions and the community at large. There are so many ways to make a positive impact on the life of an older person. Regardless of the means you choose, you can be assured your gift will enhance WesleyLife's mission of supporting the independence, health and well-being of older adults, wherever they call home.

The WesleyLife Promise

Guided by Christian compassion, WesleyLife believes everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of continued growth, experience, engagement, and meaning regardless of physical, social, or economic circumstances.


Assistance from the Good Samaritan or Good Shepherd fund at a WesleyLife community can make a world of difference to a resident in need.

The promise began with WesleyLife's inception in 1947. Since then, we've assured our residents that if they deplete their financial resources through no fault of their own, they will never be asked to leave their homes with us, or experience a reduction in the degree of care they receive.

Supported solely by donations, the WesleyLife Promise is funded by each community's Good Samaritan or Good Shepherd fund. Neighbors helping neighbors; that's what being a Good Samaritan is all about. 

Please consider donating to the Good Samaritan/Good Shepherd fund at the community of your choice to help keep residents safe and healthy at home. Whether you are giving for the first time or have supported these funds previously, we appreciate your compassion and generosity!

Meals on Wheels

Every day, WesleyLife delivers hot, healthy meals to about 1,000 older adults and military veterans of all ages in Central Iowa. In addition to delivering a meal, drivers also perform a daily safety check and are often the only human interaction participants have during the day.

Join us to combat food insecurity in our community.

Thanks largely to the generous support of our donors, nearly 86% of all meals are provided at no- or reduced-cost.

Please consider donating to WesleyLife Meals on Wheels to help provide healthy meals and a friendly face to older adults in our community. Whether you are giving for the first time or have supported these funds previously, we appreciate your support!

Memorial Giving

Memorials honoring a departed loved one’s memory can give friends and family a way to share their sympathy while making a gift that has a profound, positive impact on the lives of others. For details on creating a memorial or making a donation to WesleyLife Hospice, reach out to us.
