About Apostolic Christian LifePoints
The idea of Apostolic Christian LifePoints (ACLP) was conceived by God moving the hearts and minds of parents within the Apostolic Christian Church body. Consequently, after much thought, prayer and effort, the home opened in 1971 under the name Apostolic Christian Home for the Handicapped. The aim and quest was and is to assure that individuals with disabilities within the church, as well as within the community, be served and cared for with love, dignity and in the safety of a Christian atmosphere.
The services of the Agency are overseen by a Board of Directors appointed by the Apostolic Christian Church.
The Agency has grown in many ways and continues to carry out its work under God’s direction. Some changes over the years include the addition in 1978 at the south end of our 74-bed facility. Ten years later, our Agency opened its first 16-bed facility. The smaller setting allows residents to live with a heightened sense of independence and community. With the success of our first 16-bed facility, the Lord made a way for ACLP to open a second 16-bed home in 1994. As time passed, ACLP was blessed with the vision and resources to open several small (4 to 5 bed) homes within the town of Morton. These small homes, commonly referred to as Community Integrated Living Arrangements or CILAs, afford our residents even greater independence and the opportunity to develop stronger daily living skills. Keeping the concept of smaller homes in mind, in 2013 one of our 16-bed homes was remodeled to allow 12 individuals in wheelchairs to live in a home that provides greater independence while maintaining a high degree of services, safety and dignity.
