Phase 1 Complete – New Addition Is Open

The Holland Christian Home officially celebrated the opening of a new addition on Thursday, June 20. Approximately 100 residents, family members, community partners and friends of the Home gathered for an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony to memorialize the milestone. Mayor of North Haledon Randy George offered words of congratulation and cut the ribbon for the new building. Built as part of the first phase of the Home’s Spirit of Progress building campaign, the addition serves as a new “front door” for the organization. New administration offices line the first floor, while the second and third floors feature all new private resident rooms and modern common areas. “We have been looking forward to this day for a long time,” said Steven Eichhorn, President of the Holland Christian Home Association Board of Directors. “God has blessed us, and we are eager to continue sharing those blessings with the senior community for many years to come.” The Holland Christian Home is a North Haledon-based Continuing Care Retirement Community that has been serving northern New Jersey’s seniors since 1895. Through their Life Care program, residents receive a lifetime of care ranging from independent living to around-the-clock skilled nursing — all under one roof. Future phases of the Spirit of Progress building project will add dedicated memory-care rooms and services to the Home’s care options. Projected to finish by 2021, the project will also result in complete renovations to Mountain View skilled nursing unit, providing new furnishings and more private rooms.

Cornerstones Placed in New Addition

Although many months of interior construction remain, the outside of our new addition looks remarkable! With work progressing rapidly, the Holland Christian Home’s cornerstones were laid September 20, 2018 at the entrance of the front of the addition. The two cornerstones have grounded many eras of the Holland Christian Home. The first, dated 1922, undergirded our home in Paterson until 1960, when it joined the second stone in our move to North Haledon. Inscribed on each is a reference to 1 Peter 5:7b, “He careth for you.” The stones are a longstanding reminder of God’s continued faithfulness to the Home — and of the mission he has given us!
