About Sayre Christian Village

Hope . Housing . Healthcare

Who we are

Over thirty-five years ago, The vision for Sayre Christian Village was cast as 16 Christian Ministers and laymen laid out the plan to develop a nonprofit retirement community that would provide continuous care in a Christian environment.

From those humble beginnings, the Board of Directors and supporters of Sayre Christian Village have committed themselves to provide safe, affordable housing, and care for people of retirement age. We have built a reputation as a versatile, thriving retirement community. Our lovely 27-acre campus is located in a quiet neighborhood, minutes away from shopping, restaurants and medical facilities.

We invite you to visit our campus, talk with our residents and see for yourself why we say Sayre Christian Village is "A Great Place to Call Home."

Our Mission Statement
Sayre Christian Village is a nonprofit senior living community dedicated to providing quality housing, rehabilitation services and long-term nursing care reflecting Christian compassion for everyone.

Our History

Sayre Christian Village was founded by the non-denominational fellowship of Christian Churches and Churches of Christ in Kentucky.

On December 5, 1972 the vision was cast by a group of 16 Christian Ministers and Christian laymen to develop a nonprofit retirement community that would provide continuous care in a Christian environment. Christian Benevolent Outreach, Inc. (CBO), Sayre's parent organization, began its ministry in 1975 with a gift of land from Broadway Christian Church. Broadway gifted the land to CBO for development of a community to serve older adults.

Sayre Christian Village became a reality with the opening of Baunta Apartments in 1983 serving independent older adults. In 1984 the Sayre Healthcare Center was added, which provides Long Term Skilled Nursing Care. In 1987 Friendship Towers was opened, also providing independent living apartments for older adults, and in 2002 Friendship Towers became certified to provide Assisted Living to "those who need a little extra help" to remain independent. In 2009 Forest View Apartments, designed for independent older adults, completed the "Village."
