Since 1897, Character & Caring

Serving the retirement needs of Bucks County for more than 120 years.


Our History

In 1895, a need for care for seniors of moderate income was identified by members of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of Friends (Quakers).  So strongly was this need felt by Meeting members, that six Friends “Boarding Homes,” one from each local county (Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery) were built with Friends Home & Village seated in Bucks County.

Friends Home & Village has served seniors of moderate income since 1897.

A non-profit senior living community inspired by Quaker Values, FHV continues to provide its residents not only the tangible items that offer security, like affordable housing and excellent services, but the intangible things that provide comfort like respect, inclusion, and companionship.

Our Mission

To provide moderately priced, small-community retirement living in a caring environment.

Our Vision

To be known as a viable community where there is mutual respect among residents, staff and directors, and the dignities of individuals are protected.

Our Values

  • Live and work in peace and harmony,

  • Respect all individuals,

  • Seek cultural diversity,

  • Wisely manage our resources and the assets under our care,

  • Foster an independent lifestyle for our residents,

  • Connect with and participate in a wider community of Quakers, and

  • Continually seek our Inner Light.
