Long before its inception, Phoebe Ministries had built a reputation for serving older adults in its Lehigh Valley community and had begun to look for avenues to expand its ministry to a wider area. In the late 1980s, a team of local ministers and community leaders were searching for a way to bring Phoebe’s passion for quality care and service to Berks county, and settled on the site where Phoebe Berks stands today. But the campus itself is steeped in its own rich history, one that stretches back nearly 300 years.
