At Ecumenical, Helping Others Never Gets Old

Our residents at Ecumenical Retirement Community choose to remain active and vital members of our campus and community outreach. This commitment to service enriches their lives and the lives of others (they’re an inspiration to us all!). Throughout the year, our residents identify the needs of others in the local, regional and world community and put into action a variety of community outreach and volunteer programs.
