Welcome to Brooklyn United Methodist Church Home! The Brooklyn United Methodist Church Home is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian skilled nursing home with 120 beds and a staff of 150.
Founded in 1883 by Methodist Church members to provide a comfortable residence for their “indigent” elderly, the first Home was situated on McDonough Street and Stuyvesant Avenue. As a result of the tireless efforts of some 200 women and men from virtually every Methodist church in Brooklyn, the number of applicants for admission grew so large that expansion was essential. Thus, in 1889, a new Home opened at 920 Park Place, which served the elderly for the next 87 years.
The changing needs of the elderly played a role in making the Home what it is today. In 1976, the Home moved to its present location – a modern, sunny four-story building – and took a new direction as a skilled nursing facility. The Home now welcomes all people regardless of religious preference, race, sex, age, handicaps, national origin, or source of payment.
