50 Years of Loving-Kindness, and the Best is Ahead
Acts Retirement-Life Communities story began modestly in 1972 with a clear mission: Providing peace of mind to seniors by being a pre-eminent provider of retirement services in a Christian atmosphere graced with Loving-Kindness. Today, the Acts organization remains humble and steadfast in that mission, focusing on meeting the needs of many more seniors and working with our industry partners to shape the future of aging services.
How Far We've Come.
A look back on Acts’ history and its growth.
In its 50 years of being a pre-eminent provider of retirement services, Acts and its campuses have come a long way in their growth.
Acts Retirement-Life Communities began out of the concern of a suburban Philadelphia pastor and some members of his church who sought a dignified and acceptable retirement setting for the older members of the congregation. From there, Acts opened its first community in 1972, what is now Fort Washington Estates, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Today, Acts is one of the largest not-for-profit operators of continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) in the United States.
Acts is independent of affiliation with any specific denomination, but maintains its Christian roots through the practice of having a full-time Chaplain at each community.
