Twelveacres is a non-profit corporation that has been serving the cause of Christian Science for over 80 years. Our mission is, “Overcoming Developmental Challenges Through Christian Science.”
The residents of Twelveacres live in four homes in Silicon Valley where our dedicated staff work with them to overcome the limitations of disability through Christian Science care and education. In their homes they are learning independent living skills, including meal preparation, household duties, purchasing discretion, and how to schedule their free time. They also participate daily in outside programs sponsored by the community, including vocational training, art classes, and swimming lessons. Additionally, residents attend local Christian Science churches, and utilize the resources of their communities, such as outings to parks, restaurants, shopping malls and theaters.
