Wesley Homes Foundation is

Revolutionizing Senior Living

The Wesley Homes Foundation is a non-profit, public 501(c)(3) organization that works to provide philanthropic support for Wesley Homes. We support the mission and vision of Wesley Homes.

A History of Giving

Since 1944, Wesley Homes has provided housing and related services to older adults in the Puget Sound region. Methodist Reverend Stanley Logan founded Wesley Homes based on the principle that older adults should be able to age with respect and dignity. Wesley Homes has remained true to that founding principle and is now a leader in senior housing and services with an unmatched reputation for quality, compassion, and care.

A Mission to Serve

Wesley Homes Foundation continues the legacy of our founder by fostering a culture of philanthropy across all of Wesley Homes’ communities and home health services. Many generous donors to the Foundation have helped enhance the lives of Wesley residents and helped Wesley Homes to grow and serve older adults in our region. With this continuing support, Wesley Homes Foundation provides care, support and services to those who need a helping hand and make the Wesley Homes communities even better places to live for all of our residents.
