Greeting from Our President

DrLaverneJoseph-200x250RHF was founded in 1961 by two United Church of Christ clergy and a layman with a vision of providing quality housing and services for seniors.

With $7,000 and their vision they launched what has become one of the nation’s largest non-profit providers of housing and services for older adults. This mission has expanded to include persons with disabilities and low income families.

Today more than 20,500 people live in our 185 communities. When I visit with residents I frequently hear that they enjoy a better quality of life than they would have had without RHF and the communities we provide.

I encourage you to read our mission statement, vision, philosophy, and core values and the explanation of our logo as they are the driving force for what we do.

If we can be of service to you, or answer any questions, please e-mail us at or call us at 562-257-5100. We invite you to consider an RHF community for your future home, and we welcome inquiries if you are looking for a place to work or volunteer.

We also welcome your financial, or in-kind, support because it takes many sources of support to underwrite our work. We believe that everyone deserves a safe, secure, and affordable place to live, and we invite you to help us make that possibility a reality.

Rev. Laverne R. Joseph, D.D.
