Who We Are
Landis Communities was formed in September 2011 as a nonprofit organization. It is designed to coordinate a number of subsidiary organizations which provide a range of programs and services for those 55 and older. Landis Communities board and staff will coordinate the efforts of these entities and appoint subsidiary board members and key staff. They will also approve capital expenditures, budgets and strategic plans. Landis Communities is an agency of Lancaster Mennonite Conference and an affiliated ministry of the Atlantic Coast Conference of the Mennonite Church.
