Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself.

What if He meant that we should love our ACTUAL neighbors?
At Apartment Life, our passion is sending CARES Teams into apartment communities to change the world, simply by loving their neighbors. Would you like to join us?

“We all have a need for genuine community, and nothing beats the frequency, availability, and spontaneity of connecting deeply with others who live nearby.”
  -The Art of Neighboring, by Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon

Apartment Life believes that a community can be radically transformed when a single CARES Team intentionally invests in the lives of neighbors and combines heartfelt service with joy, fun, and authentic relationships. It’s that simple!

Each CARES Team (a married couple, family, or two single adults of the same gender) moves into an apartment community and partners with the management team to deliver the CARES program. Through the CARES program, the team has the opportunity to build community and serve residents by doing things that flow naturally out of the Christian lifestyle – welcoming new neighbors, planning social functions, and CARE-ing in times of need.

Canyon Chapel has a great team serving right now, Abbey Mullen, Cassandra Jensen & Lyndsey Zamora.

You might be curious as to what they do and how you could help. They have four different events each month where the community gathers around food and fun. They are always looking for volunteers to help at these events. If you would like more information, please contact them at  


Together we can change the lives of people living in apartment communities, and one person at a time, we can change the world. If you would like additional information before deciding if being a CARES Team is a good fit for you, fill out our Info Form and someone will follow up with you.
