Ann A. and Frederick E. Blumer
Ann and Fred Blumer moved to Phoebe Berks Village in 2009. Since then, they’ve graciously provided meaningful philanthropic support to Phoebe Ministries.

“We support Phoebe not just because of services provided but because Phoebe is expertly managed. Gifts to Phoebe simply go farther. Phoebe doesn’t boast about serving those who suffer. Phoebe simply serves… and we lend a helping hand.”

– Ann & Frederick

Mitch and Jami Possinger 

Since 1999, Mitch and Jami have served Phoebe in several volunteer roles. Their leadership, and the support Phoebe has received from them personally and from Cura Hospitality, which Mitch founded, have enhanced our campuses, advanced our educational initiatives, and helped sustain charity care.

“As America ages, the needs for services for the aging will grow exponentially at a time when resources to provide those services will become increasingly constrained. It takes an organization like Phoebe with the experience, entrepreneurial spirit that’s now more than 100 years old, and commitment to mission to tackle this challenge. We are pleased to be part of Phoebe Ministries. Helping others smile makes us smile!”

Arlan Dohrenburg’s desire to honor his mother’s memory and support the institution that cared for her during the last decade of her life guided him to arrange monthly gifts to Phoebe Ministries.

“I feel it’s important to make charitable gifts to Phoebe a part of my monthly budget. It’s a wonderful way to honor my mother and express my gratitude to Phoebe.”
