We’re as good as we are today because friends like you supported us yesterday.
Founded in 1894 by Minnesota’s first Episcopal Deaconess Sister Annette Relf, Episcopal Homes enriches lives and builds community with older adults and the staff, volunteers and clergy who serve them.
In the past 125 years, Episcopal Homes endured two world wars, the Great Depression and Great Recession, a near doubling of life expectancy, and the demise and subsequent rebirth of our St. Paul Midway neighborhood.
While much has changed, Sister Annette’s simple vision of a dignified home for poor elderly residents remains. Today, 69 percent of our independent residences offer subsidized, affordable housing to elders with incomes below 30 percent of our area median and 40 percent of residents are people of color. We deliver equal services to all elders, regardless of ability to pay, per our commitment to building a diverse, welcoming, vibrant community.
Your contributions in all shapes and sizes of time, talent and treasure remain pivotal to Episcopal Homes’ secure foundation and capacity to provide rich fitness, learning, art, and spiritual programming to actively engage older adults in ways that explore new talents, form community relationships and foster whole person wellbeing.
