About Us

Since opening our doors in May of 1958, the Home has continued its sacred mission to provide the elderly with a home-away-from-home where they can live out their “golden years” with love, dignity, and quality of care in a Greek Orthodox environment. Our number one priority is ensuring that our residents experience the highest quality of life possible – spiritually, physically and emotionally. Truly, it is a unique facility offering quality care in a loving environment where our residents are cared for as “family members” and are accorded not only the appropriate care they need but also the respect and love of the entire staff.

Saint Michael’s Home:
A Mission of Faith & Love

His Eminence Archbishop Michael

His Eminence Archbishop Michael

In 1957, having seen the need for a facility to serve the growing number of Greek Orthodox elderly, Archbishop Michael appointed the first Board of Trustees of St. Michael’s under the aegis of the Archdiocese. That same year, the trustees purchased a building in Yonkers and within 10 months, at that time, the 60 year old building was completely renovated.

 

On May 25, 1958, the community celebrated the opening of the Home, known then as the “Spiti Tou Protoporou” (the Home of the Pioneer) since the first residents were the “pioneers” of the Greek American community here in the United States. Towards the end of the 1980’s, the building was completely renovated. Wings were added on either end of the existing structure to increase the capacity of the facility to 60 residents and to provide additional ancillary space.

 

Since then, St. Michael’s has continued to improve and enhance the daily life and care of its elderly residents. Over the years, the composition of the Home’s population has begun slowly transitioning from first generation immigrants to those born and raised in the United States.

Expansion & Relocation

Having earned a stellar reputation, greater demands for its services have been placed on St. Michael's. The Home has outgrown its current facility and further expansion at the at the current location is not possible because of limited size of the property.

The Home has embarked on its expansion project to meet the ever growing needs of the elderly community...
