In 1962 the Worcester Area Mission Society (part of the United Church of Christ) studied the need for affordable housing for the elderly in the Worcester area. They formed a small group to give life to their ideas. In 1963, Colony Retirement Homes received a charter as a non-profit agency from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
In the years that followed, the Colony Retirement Homes Board of Directors secured land and built five projects. These beautiful buildings are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our original Board and their vision.
More information about our upcoming celebration will be announced soon.
