History

In 1965, Casa de Modesto was conceptualized by Fred Strohm, his wife Ethel, and his brother Myrle. Together with the Brethren Church, ground was broken for senior community.

Casa de Modesto was the first of its kind in the area. The goal has always been to provide an affordable option for seniors in Modesto, and the surrounding areas, while providing quality care to the residents that we serve. Throughout the years Casa de Modesto has expanded and is now, 56 years later, a non-denominational, non-profit 501(c)(3) providing all levels of care for seniors. Quality care in a loving environment remains at the center of all we do at Casa de Modesto!
