Entering our second century of caring for the elderly of Cincinnati’s African-American community; Lincoln Crawford is a combination of two original homes for aged African-Americans. In 1881 John T. Crawford left his estate in College Hill for the sole purpose of a "home for the aged and worthy colored men." The Progressive Benefit Society was established in 1919 as an institute to care for black women in their declining years. These two homes merged in 1973 as the Lincoln Avenue and Crawford Home for the Aged. In 1995 Wesley Services Organization acquired Lincoln Crawford.
Today Lincoln Crawford is a certified 100-bed skilled nursing facility with rehabilitation and therapy services. Our staff continually rededicates itself to our mission of service through state of the art medical technology, in addition to social interaction, pastoral support and religious services. The only African-American not-for-profit nursing home in Southwest Ohio, Lincoln Crawford is a Medicare/Medicaid approved skilled nursing facility.
