The Garden Café Needs Your Help

“In the spirit of Christ’s love” Auburn Homes & Services has been a leader in our community, providing service to our amazing senior residents for 89 years!

We now have an immediate concern that must be addressed. The Garden Café on our Chaska campus needs some renovation. According to the MN Department of Health the Café must meet the NSF (National Safety Federation) standards. This makes the renovation project imperative and urgent.

The Garden Café is a vital part of the life experience at Auburn. It is a great addition to the menu provided by our food services in our neighborhood dining areas. It offers an opportunity for personal choice, variety and a place for families to join their loved one(s) for a meal. The Garden Café is THE location for residents, staff and community to gather socially over cups of coffee or special, made-from-scratch indulgences. Life without the Café would deny our residents and families a welcoming place they enjoy each and every day.

We need your help to raise $34,000 for this vital project.
