HISTORY Of the home

The Home has a rich history that supports the feeling of gracious living so many residents rave about.

In 1865 'The Home for the Friendless' was organized for the dependents of Civil War veterans and for women of limited resources.

Conceived by a small group of Presbyterian women, The Auburn Female Bible Society, “The Home” has operated without interruption since that time. Still known today by many as "The Home," both male and female residents from varied backgrounds bring with them lifetime experiences and talents which they share in many ways.

The affairs of “The Home” are the concern of the Board of Managers who is involved in every aspect of its smooth functioning. The Board of Trustees maintain the facility and grounds as well as overseeing the endowments.
