The UCHS (United Church Home Society) founded the Senior Wishes program in late 2013. UCHS traces its roots back to 1887 when a dedicated group of churches formed the Church Home in Forks, New York to serve needy elders regardless of their faith status. The UCHS supports ventures that develop community, residential and home-based solutions that help people become or remain independent.

Today, the UCHS is the founder of Western New York’s premier retirement community – Fox Run at Orchard Park. This Lifecare Retirement Community opened in 2007 on a 53 acre campus. Fox Run offers apartment/patio homes, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing services.

The UCHS also founded the United Church Manor in 1987. Located in West Seneca, the Manor provides subsidized housing to those in need under the HUD 202 program. The Manor, located in a park-like setting, has 12 studio and 37 one bedroom apartments.
