• Meet our residents

    A 70-year-old woman who convinced herself she was about to die but has been thriving in our community for four years. A gentleman who is celebrating five years of sobriety after moving into one of our apartments. A veteran who moved from his furnace-less mobile home to a warm apartment all his own. Read and watch our residents’ stories as you get to know the people St. Mary serves.

  • 4,700 apartment units built. 30 years of serving the needs of older people.

    In 1980, St. Mary’s founders Dick McBride and Sr. Rose Wildenhaus were on a shared mission to help the poor by sharing God’s love and meeting their basic needs. Today that mission has touched more than 5,000 lives. Learn more in this video history of our founders, our mission, and our impact.
