Senior Living that Includes Everyone

We are a not-for-profit community of senior living campuses that embrace aging in Buffalo, NY. We provide access to care that evolves as you age and that honors your independence and need for community.

Our three unique senior living facilities provide a range of services that focus on maximizing your independence. This includes independent senior apartments, an Enriched Housing Program for our income eligible residents, and a 24-Hour Adult Care facility. We make affordable senior housing accessible. Our facilities minister to the needs of more than 250 residents on a daily basis.

How Far We Have Come…

When the committee met in 1948 to explore the need for a home for aging persons, they built a network of senior living facilities that survives today. They didn’t know what it would evolve into (we haven’t always ourselves!). It’s difficult to predict where our communities will shift as our culture and neighborhoods do the same. We’re certain of a few things though:

We will embrace aging persons of all backgrounds.
We will include everyone, especially those who feel left out.
We will give every grain of love and generosity we can.
We will continue to pursue our mission, live our values, and toil tirelessly.
