A Community of Compassion

Our mission at Ecumenical Retirement Community is to provide an affordable retirement community of diversity and autonomy, where empowered residents of different religions, cultures and races live together to make a difference inside and outside of the community.

It’s what sets us a part from other senior living communities. We recognize and appreciate that our residents value contributing to the very neighborhoods that fostered their livelihoods. And where they may not be able to give back financially, they donate their time and talents to create a similar impact.

We Want to Make a Difference, As Do Our Residents

The Ecumenical Retirement Community is a not-for-profit Pennsylvania retirement community designed to provide the middle class with affordable senior housing apartments with services ranging from independent living to dementia care in Harrisburg, and everything in between. Our community is managed by The George M. Leader Family Corporation (a company formed by late Pennsylvania Governor George Leader and his family who owns Country Meadows Retirement Communities) with over 30 years of experience serving the retirement needs of seniors in Pennsylvania and western Maryland.
