Job Description

Throughout its 112 year history, United Methodist Communities (UMC) has continued to grow and innovate to meet the needs of older adults. The nonprofit, faith-based organization began when a few people responded to a bishop’s post-Civil War challenge to house widows and orphans and others responded to the need for retirement housing for Methodist missionaries, deaconesses, pastors, and laity. The first site, a small residential home in Ocean Grove, marked its beginning as a leader in senior living and care. We are always seeking qualified, enthusiastic individuals to join our growing team!
