Ecumenical Retirement Community's History Of CaringEcumenical Retirement Community's founder, the late Governor George M. Leader, listens to a resident share her passion for sewing tote bags for cancer patients through the American Cancer Society. (June 2006)

Ecumenical’s History Of Caring

After founding Country Meadows Retirement Communities 11 years earlier, the late Governor George M. Leader saw a need for affordable retirement living in Harrisburg. Seniors who had established their livelihoods on the East Shore had few options to remain local and connected to their community. Governor Leader understood what it meant for these individuals and in 1994 developed Ecumenical Retirement Community in the heart of Susquehanna Township with cost-effective lifestyle options and opportunities for seniors to thrive as well as give back—both important factors in living with a purpose.

Enough Love To Go Around

Affiliated with Country Meadows, Ecumenical’s programs and services were built upon the same high quality and compassionate care. Our community grew from one building to three by 2001 as more residents sought our services and co-workers supported a setting of kindness and love.

Every resident brought their lives with them—their interests, hobbies, volunteer services. With that, their philanthropic influence multiplied, creating an impact on and off campus for others and even the residents themselves.

A Continued Connection

Today, the Leader family continues the late Governor’s vision and manages the day-to-day community operations. Ecumenical has become an integral part of the Harrisburg community and our residents are to thank.

Our residents are worth meeting, and we’d love to introduce you. Contact us today to schedule a tour to meet these very special individuals.
