History

History

High Oaks was chartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a Christian Science Nursing Facility in 1949, and continued as such until 1992 when it closed and was sold. Shortly thereafter we became a public nonprofit with a 501(c) 3 federal tax exempt designation. Our activities changed at that time to that of a resource for Christian Scientists in financial need in the area served by the High Oaks facility. This area was generally Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Our current Pennsylvania State charter allows High Oaks to serve residents in the following six states: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, New York and Virginia.

As a public nonprofit, our activities include financially assisting those in need by helping pay their bills for practitioner services, Christian Science nursing facility stays, as well as Christian Science home nursing care. We also provide two inspirational meetings for students of Christian Science each year.
