Who We Are

Building on a Legacy of Care: 136 Years

Jones-Harrison is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a deep and fascinating history.

  • Founded in 1888 by like-minded Woman’s Christian Association members.
  • We received a generous donation of land from Judge Edwin S. Jones and a financial legacy from Jane T. Granger Harrison.
  • A safe haven for the aging poor, we provided an opportunity to start anew through employment and life skills.
  • Today, we remain at the forefront of change, delivering innovative programs and services for the highest-quality continuum of care that nourishes the mind, body, and spirit.
  • Located on the scenic banks of Cedar Lake in the charming neighborhood of Cedar, Isles, and Dean, you’ll enjoy the convenience of home in an engaging, community-based environment.

Health & Wellness at Every Stage of Life

From Independent Living to Assisted Living and Memory Care apartments, plus Long-Term Care and a highly-rated Transitional Care Unit, you’ll experience exceptional care and comfort. Programs and services are tailored to meet your needs now and in the future. There’s something for everyone with lovely amenities and enriching activities, including the Wasie Wellness Center, restaurant-style dining, weekly happy hours, and more.

Jones-Harrison’s skilled nursing staff, rehabilitation, administration, and support professionals are committed to residents’ health, well-being, and independence. We believe everyone is entitled to dignity, self-expression, and fundamental well-being regardless of where you are on life’s journey.

Jones-Harrison is now managed by Ebenezer, Minnesota’s largest senior housing operator with more than 100 years of experience in senior housing. As part of the Fairview Health System, Ebenezer has the resources and expertise that provide older adults throughout Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Florida access to a full range of choices for vibrant senior living.

Meet the Board of Directors

Jones-Harrison’s board comprises a group of committed volunteers passionate about older adults living well and thriving. The 15 current board members come from diverse careers and work collectively to advocate for the organization and serve the best interests of current and future residents. In collaboration with the leadership team, the board oversees governance issues from finance and strategic leadership to quality of life. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the board guides the reinvestment of any profit back into our core mission of “nurturing lives of passion and purpose for older adults in a loving and inclusive environment.”

The board’s multi-faceted expertise, wisdom, and insights strengthen our senior living community. The board members’ passion and commitment are evident from their generous contributions of time and resources. We are grateful for their support and guidance.
