United Church Homes - A History of Caring!

Comfort. Friendship. Celebration. These are the hallmarks of United Church Homes communities – campuses that have inspired journeys of the spirit for residents and team members alike for nearly a century.

Today, United Church Homes is one of the largest providers of senior living, serving more than 3,500 residents in 66 communities. We value residents spiritually, physically and emotionally, and we respect their engagement in the life of our communities, including decisions about their care. This is our passion. This is our calling.

Since 1916, when Matthew and Jane Smith bequeathed 168 acres of farmland in Holland, Ohio, to the Toledo Classis of the Reformed Church to create places of “fair haven” for seniors, United Church Homes has been an innovator in person-centered care. As a faith-based outreach of the United Church of Christ, our heritage is one of inclusion, innovation, and continued spiritual growth. Here, life’s journeys continue and residents are celebrated not only for all they are but all they might yet be.

As the years have passed, United Church Homes has faced the inevitable changes and challenges, but one thing remains the same: our communities continue to celebrate the spirit of seniors by providing a uniquely holistic approach. They are places of exceptional care for the whole person.

We are United Church Homes and we invite you to learn more about our comprehensive model of senior living. Discover how you can celebrate the spirit with us.
