History, Mission & Values

History, Mission and Values

We honor our history and continue the legacy of helping others.

Our proud history dates back to 1888 when Montgomery Place was founded as The Church Home for seniors in need. We celebrate the diversity of the residents and community here while reflecting this Episcopal heritage. Following the building of Montgomery Place in Hyde Park in the 1990s, Church Home became a ministry specializing in pastoral care for seniors and a center for Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) located at Montgomery Place.

Our location in Hyde Park, with close proximity to the University of Chicago and abundant local city resources, provides an urban retirement lifestyle that is stimulating, engaging and enriching. We continue the legacy of helping others and our enduring goal remains the same—to enhance the lives of the senior adults who honor us by joining the campus community or who benefit from using the services of our LifeCare@HOME program.
