When Beatitudes Campus was founded in 1965, it was conceived to be a place where older adults could live, learn and grow through all the days of their lives. Our Founders dreamed of a "campus," borrowing the term from the educational community because of its sense of continual growth and vibrancy.
Our Campus was one of the first to introduce the concept of continuing care and improve the quality of retirement living in North Central Phoenix. Many years have passed since we opened and we are proud to say that while times have changed, our Campus is still the leader in quality, affordable retirement living. Today, we continue to be a center of excellence in the field of aging services as we focus on the concept of living rather than aging.
In fact, we remain at the forefront of exceptional retirement living by keeping our eye on the future. Through our redevelopment and expansion, we have added 199 new residences and the state-of-the-art Town Plaza – the heart of the community – featuring modern amenities, dining venues and health and wellness services. Combine this with our existing retirement living options, and you’ve found a place that any senior can call home.
Our community is founded by Church of the Beatitudes, a United Church of Christ congregation. Church of the Beatitudes also founded the following related not-for-profit organizations: Beatitudes Agelink, an intergenerational child development center located on the site of our Campus; and Duet: Partners In Health & Aging, serving homebound adults, caregivers, faith communities, and grandparents raising grandchildren.
