A Spirit of Caring

Barclay Friends began with a gift and for more than 120 years, has provided an environment that preserves the dignity and vitality of older adults.  We are and always have been a non-profit organization.  All of our funds are devoted to improving the lives of one of society’s vulnerable populations.  Through the generosity of donors, we are able to ensure continued care at Barclay Friends for many residents who have outlived their resources.  Likewise, the philanthropic support of the West Chester community enabled us to make the transformational move to Franklin Street and establish the Horticultural Therapy Program.

Heart in Hands

The Caring Fund

Because of the support from generous donors, Barclay Friends has never asked a resident to leave because he or she has exhausted his or her financial means.
