Improving lives through communities, services, and outreach.


Through their estates, Dr. and Mrs. Maurice H. Givens established a retirement community on their 160-acre mountain retreat to benefit people from all walks of life.

In August 1975, Givens Estates became a United Methodist, non-profit retirement community. Over the next 40 years, Givens would expand within the region to include several senior housing communities, outreach ministries, and partnerships in support of seniors, families, and others. The Givens organization continues to be governed by a volunteer board of directors approved by the United Methodist Conference.
