United Church Homes is related to the United Church of Christ. Reflecting this faith tradition, our volunteer board of directors sets policy, oversees operations and has planned for the continuation of distinguished service to seniors since 1916. The board meets quarterly to conduct business and plan for the future activities of the organization. Varied backgrounds, interest and expertise are reflected in the board membership.
