Faith-Based Mission and Impact

United Methodist Retirement Communities got its start more than a century ago when a group of Methodist pastors and lay leaders envisioned a way to provide a lifetime of caring and dignity for “the lonely aged.”

Much has changed at UMRC since its first ten residents arrived in 1907. Yet, our faith-based mission and belief in charitable care continue to be at the heart of all we do.

The UMRC Foundation was created in 1998 to help keep our faithful founders’ promise of Benevolent Care and lift the burden of worry for our seniors who have outlived their resources. Thanks to the generosity of many, the UMRC Foundation has provided more than $15 million in charitable care needs since then to help ensure our residents always have a home where they are loved and treasured.


We invite you to join our ever-growing circle of friends who are making a difference in the lives of seniors. There are many ways for you to shine a light for our residents while meeting your own philanthropic goals and wishes.
