Retirement Housing Foundation

RHF was founded in 1961 by two United Church of Christ clergy and a layman with a vision of providing quality housing and services for seniors.

With $7,000 and that vision they launched what has become one of the nation's largest non-profit providers of housing and services for older adults. The mission has also expanded to include persons with various disabilities and low income families.

Today more than 17,000 persons live in our 165 communities. When I visit with them I frequently hear from them that they enjoy a better quality of life than they would have had without RHF and the communities we provide.
