The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania granted a charter to the Calvary Homes Retirement Community corporation on November 10, 1962. We held a groundbreaking for the first accommodations on June 24, 1962, and the home opened its doors in May of 1963 with 14 residents. The corporation established Calvary Homes as a non-profit, charitable retirement community in 1963.
