In 2015, Menno Haven
Retirement Community
embarked on a five-year journey
called Project Genesis, aimed
at re-inventing their Life Plan
Community, originally built in
the early 1960s. Infused in this
vision was a focus on elevating
the resident experience which
included providing more active
adult programming. Over the
years, Menno Haven acquired
adjacent retirement communities
within Chambersburg and

Green Township in southcentral Pennsylvania. Project
Genesis merged culture and
brand through the planning
process and resulted in the
design and construction of five
new buildings, totaling over $90
million in value.
With existing independent
living amenities scattered
across what used to be multiple
communities, the team sought
to create a community commons
that would break down any
perceived barriers in the new
community. The Life Center
is now the hub for resident
engagement and is focused on
their vision for active living,
social interaction and healthy
lifestyles that was developed in
the programming and drove the
planning and design. The healthy
living emphasis culminates in
the full-service spa experience
featuring an illuminated, handcrafted Himalayan salt wall.
Extraordinary food, engaging
entertainment, wellness indoors
and out, along with life-long
learning, shape the interior and
exterior environments at the
Menno Haven Life Center.
