Mission and compassion –
it’s who we are and why we’re here.
On behalf of the PMMA Board of Trustees and senior leadership, we are pleased to share the 2020 Annual Report.
The annual report contains images and true accounts that tell the PMMA story during this historic year. Donors and volunteers like you remained faithful, and even now continue to fill the gaps. We are proud to say that COVID did not stop the passion and generosity for the PMMA mission. So many people poured out love across Kansas and Missouri to our residents and employees. We are forever grateful.
We hope this report inspires you, and helps connect you in a deeper and richer way to the mission you serve. As we reflect on this year, thank you for the good you have made possible through your prayers and gifts.

You are the difference.
PMMA exists with the help of people like you. People who believe in a mission to serve and make a difference in the lives of others by sharing gifts of time, talent and treasure.
And you can, too.
If you have the time, stop by one of our communities and get to know our residents. Talk to them. Listen to their stories. Or, just provide them with a little company. No gesture is too small to have a lasting effect.
If you have a talent, share it. Give a performance, lead a discussion or teach a new skill. Learning, experiencing and enjoying new things is an important part of life regardless of age.
If you have the financial means, or available resources, give. Each donation provided to PMMA will be utilized within the community to which it is given or one specified by its benefactor.
Watch for more details to come for upcoming fundraising events. While events will look a little different this year, the heart and spirit of these events remains the same – and are sure to be an exciting time in our PMMA communities.

Some of the success stories
Good Samaritan Program“Knowing that mom receives such personalized care gives us great peace of mind. When she started to run out of funds, we were afraid we were going to have to find a new place for her, but luckily, the Good Samaritan Program was there to lend a hand.”
Art is Ageless® Program“At 94 and legally blind, my days of creating art are behind me, but I am still very interested in art and I know it can be of benefit to older people — whether it be through creative expression, education or service.”
Music & Memory℠ Program“The importance of recognizing each other’s humanity is one of the most important assets we can give to others. We walked away with stories, and an understanding that all people just want to tell their story and be heard. Hopefully, the music program will allow residents to remember even more of their stories.”
One More Time Program"We all had such a good time and it meant so much to Mother, Daddy, and I to see my brother up and enjoying himself. As a family, we haven't seen him laughing and visiting in the last year. It was such a blessing."
Employee Scholarship Program"I have so many student loans from starting my nursing education; I would not have gone back to school if I had not had access to the PMMA scholarship program. Getting another scholarship means continuing my career and advancing my opportunity as a nurse."
