About United Methodist Communities

In the late 19th century, the movement to create homes for senior men and women was a direct result of social and economic conditions following the Civil War. A very large number of the 630,000 men killed in the Civil War were Methodist Episcopal. This, in turn, left thousands of widows and fatherless children.

The Pennsylvania area Methodist Episcopal Church leader, Bishop Simpson, was asked to preach one of the funeral sermons for Abraham Lincoln. Using the text from James 2:27, which says, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world”. He urged people to help widows and children. In response to this call, the Methodist Episcopal Church in Pennsylvania planned and established a home for widows and named it in his honor. Simpson House remains in Philadelphia to this day. Methodist Episcopal churches in the Camden, New Jersey area raised funds and in 1891 built what is now known as Collingswood Manor. In 1971, it became part of United Methodist Communities.

In 1907, a committee of women appointed by the New Brunswick District Preachers corresponded with pastors and members of the Methodist Episcopal churches of Monmouth County about the importance of establishing a home for the aged. In response to this need, a single home at 63 Clark Avenue in Ocean Grove was purchased and what became the United Communities was founded.. A new Methodist home at 70 Stockton Avenue was opened in November 1949; 88 residents were transferred from the Clark Avenue home. In 1970, it was renamed for Bishop Francis Asbury—one of the first two bishops of the United Methodist Church.

The mission of United Methodist Communities has been essentially unchanged since its inception at the beginning of the 20th century and has roots in even earlier developments at establishments that are now part of the organization.

Over the next few decades expansion occurred: Methodist Manor (Branchville) in 1961, the Shores in Ocean City in 1963, Collingswood in 1971, and Pitman in 1974.

While major renovations occurred at all of the established communities, United Methodist Communities partnered with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and local churches to develop senior housing communities, beginning in 1982 with Wesley by the Bay in Ocean City. Partnering with HUD and two local churches, Bishop Taylor opened in 1989 in East Orange. Three more were added from 1994 through 2002: The Wesleyan in Red Bank, Covenant Place in Plainfield and PineRidge of Montclair.

The only Continuing Care Retirement Community, Bristol Glen, opened in 2001 (replacing Methodist Manor) and expanded the organization’s presence in Northern New Jersey.

In 2014, United Methodist Communities adopted a new mission, vision, and values statement. The mission, flowing from John 10:10; Compassionately serving in community so that all are free to choose abundant life, is the motivation for all we do.

Throughout its 109 year, history as a leader in senior living and care, United Methodist Communities has grown and changed to reflect the needs of its communities, residents, and families. With the development of the organization’s current Strategic Plan, United Methodist Communities has broadened its organizational scope to now include home and community-based services. A major thrust is growing the ministry in many communities across the state and reaching beyond the homes’ walls to seniors wherever they live.

In response to these initiatives, in April 2016, United Methodist Homes of New Jersey changed its name to United Methodist Communities, with the tagline, Abundant Life for Seniors.

Today, United Methodist Communities has 1,400 residents, over 1,000 employees and more than 100 years of compassionate care to seniors in New Jersey.
