Growing older…living with spirit

For more than 50 years, Avinity, formerly known as Twin City Christian Homes, has been developing and managing independent senior living communities throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area. We combine extensive management experience with a compassionate faith-based environment to create exceptional communities where aging is all about living well. Older adults can thrive in their social, spiritual and personal lives, and their families can have the peace of mind knowing their loved ones are safe, secure and well cared for. 

Experience, commitment, compassionate care

Skilled administrators manage each of our senior housing communities and supervise on-site staff to ensure they meet the highest standards of management and customer service. Each community has a live-in caretaker to handle after-hours emergencies and a chaplain who provides non-denominational spiritual care for the residents.

Avinity staff are experienced in operating a home care agency as well as other supportive services such as dining programs, transportation, activities and social services. We believe these valuable services help residents live healthier, more active and more fulfilling lives. Avinity also provides professional contract management, including a full range of administrative, property management and financial services.



At the core of Avinity

Inspired by God’s love, Avinity creates communities for older adults that nurture body, soul and spirit. We do that by embracing these core values:

  • Excellence - we have high standards; we seek to be innovative.
  • Compassion - we open our hearts to residents, caring for the whole person - body, soul and spirit.
  • Respect - we hear and support the needs of others; we work to build trust.
  • Integrity - we consistently adhere to high ethical standards and best practices.
  • Fellowship - we encourage an inclusive, spiritual community.
  • Stewardship - we use our resources prudently.


Our History

Committed to living with spirit for over 50 years

Our story begins in 1970, which is when Avinity, formerly known as Twin City Christian Homes (TCCH), was founded. With a clear vision for the future and a desire to help seniors, we built our first senior living community in 1984. Currently, there are five communities in the Avinity family serving more than 450 residents. We have seen tremendous growth over our 50 years and we are thankful for the many blessings we have received. We welcome all youthful spirits to be a part of our family as we continue to make history together.
