About Eliza Jennings

Choices for aging well historyuse

Eliza Jennings is a nonprofit organization that offers a range of services for today’s older adults. Whether you are seeking independent living in a secure community setting, searching for just the right assisted living environment or care in your own home, require rehabilitation or skilled nursing care, Eliza Jennings offers a solution for every need.

The Eliza Jennings legacy began in 1888 with the philanthropy of our benefactress, Eliza Wallace Jennings, who intended to care for women of need. Eliza’s legacy of philanthropy and concern for older adults lives today, more than 125 years later, as a cornerstone of our organization and in our mission to serve older adults.

With over 90 years of collective experience on our board of trustees, Eliza Jennings’ leadership brings extensive expertise in aging services and understanding to its role and responsibilities as a nonprofit organization.

Eliza Jennings is proud to be a multiple-year recipient of the NorthCoast 99 Award, honoring us as one of the 99 best places to work in Northeast Ohio.
