Mission & history

Our Mission

To create a safe, welcoming residence for independent, low-income seniors age 62 and above. Our goal is to provide a quality of life embracing connection, dignity, respect and joy.

Our History

1982 Established + Independently Funded

In 1982, members of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church recognized the urgent need for safe, affordable housing for low-income seniors. The congregation organized funding and applied for the all-important HUD subsidy that makes the rents manageable for those with limited means.

Today, St. Mark’s Towers operates independently of the church, although many members support the non-profit privately.

1992 Construction of South Tower

The initial North Tower quickly reached full occupancy, and the need for more apartments led to the construction of the second building, the South Tower, in 1992. St. Mark's Towers offers 150 homes plus important amenities.

In our highly desirable location adjacent to the celebrated resort areas of the Golden Isles, the rents for safe, accessible housing are well outside the limited means of many seniors.

Present Day

Our Towers neighbors find themselves in financial difficulty for reasons familiar to most of us. Life savings spent on the care of a spouse or family member with an extended illness. Health problems or disability resulting in the loss of ability to continue working as planned. Death of a spouse and inability to afford and maintain the family home. Without the Towers, many of the valuable seniors who have built our community, raised families and  served our country would face homelessness.  

It is our privilege to provide the secure, welcoming home they deserve.
