Our History

A Mission of Service and Compassion

As Lewisburg, Pa.’s leading not-for-profit senior living organization, RiverWoods is the evolution of a 100-plus year legacy of quality retirement services and senior living solutions.

In 1916, area church leaders established the United Evangelical Home on 108 acres that now comprise RiverWoods continuing care retirement community. The original Home, now known as the Slifer House, served widowed parishioners, included a working farm, and expanded to include an orphanage.

Today, RiverWoods proudly welcomes people of all cultures, backgrounds, and faiths, including those with no religious affiliation.

United Evangelical Home was the foundation for Albright Care Services, Inc., a comprehensive aging services organization serving seniors in Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna Valley. Through the years, the Evangelical Home continued to evolve, changing its name and adding senior apartments, cottages, and health care services.

During that time, Albright expanded its Mission to serve more older adults through RiverWoods continuing care retirement community in Lewisburg, PA., several LIFE Centers operating under the federal Programs for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, Albright Pharmacy Services, and Warrior Run HUD affordable senior housing.

Albright Affiliates with Asbury

In 2020, Albright Care Services affiliated with Asbury Communities, a nationally recognized leader in aging services that shares Albright’s faith-based heritage and values. Asbury is currently ranked by LeadingAge and Ziegler Capital Markets Group’s AZ200 as the nation’s 14th-largest not-for-profit, multi-site senior living organization.
