RHF 57th Anniversary Worship Service

During the week of February 19th, Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF) will be celebrating its 57th Anniversary, “RHF Leading The Way For Better Tomorrows””.

On Thursday, February 22, members and friends of the Southern California Nevada Conference of the UCC are invited to a 7:30 pm worship service at the Community Congregational UCC (4111 Katella Avenue, Los Alamitos) to hear Rev. Starsky D. Wilson and to celebrate the RHF ministry.

Rev. Wilson is the pastor of Saint John’s Church (The Beloved Community), President & CEO of Deaconess Foundation and former leader of the Ferguson Commission.

Deaconess is a faith-based grant making organization devoted to making child well-being a civic priority in the St. Louis region.  Since 1998, Deaconess has invested nearly $80 million to advance its mission.  With Rev. Wilson’s leadership, the Foundation is building a movement for child well-being through philanthropy, advocacy and organizing. In 2016, Deaconess broke ground on a 20,000 square foot Center for Child Well-being to serve as a collaborative hub for child advocates to open in December 2017.  With the Children’s Defense Fund, the Foundation opened three new Freedom Schools in the summer of 2017 hosted by local United Church of Christ congregations.

Saint John’s Church (The Beloved Community) is an inter-racial, inner city congregation in St. Louis, affiliated with the UCC. Through Saint John’s, Wilson has led activism on myriad issues, including youth violence prevention, Medicaid expansion, public school accreditation, voter mobilization, capping payday lending and raising the minimum wage, while more than quadrupling worship attendance and annual giving.

Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF), is a 501(c)(3),non-profit, faith-based, mission-driven, charitable organization and a recognized ministry of the UCC.  RHF was formed in 1961 by three visionaries; two California United Church of Christ clergymen and one layman.

At the beginning, RHF’s mission was to provide dignified, affordable housing and services for the elderly.  Today, RHF is one of the nation’s largest non-profit sponsors and managers of housing and services for older adults, persons with disabilities, and low-income families.

RHF means home to more than 22,000 people in 194 housing communities in 29 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  While these communities are comprised of mostly apartments, RHF also provides housing with assisted living units and skilled nursing beds.
