Who We Are

Founded in 1977, Cedar Lane Senior Living Community is a collaboration of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations providing affordable housing and supportive services to residents of Southern Maryland. Situated in the heart of Leonardtown, Maryland, our 194-unit apartment complex offers a convenient location in beautiful and historic St. Mary’s County. With a host of on-site amenities and a wide range of free and fee-based services, residents are able to maintain their independence while enjoying healthy, active lifestyles.

We serve both the elderly and disabled* residents by providing retirement living (with or without supportive services), in private, studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Two of our three buildings offer HUD-subsidies which affords low-income seniors and the disabled an option in today’s housing market. Our third building offers market-rate units that allow low- and moderate-income residents to age-in-place in a community that features a full range of convenient activities and services.

For 40 years, we have been known throughout the community for our innovation and excellence in care. Our reputation for “placing the needs of the elderly as top priority” began with our founders and carries through to today. Our dedicated and compassionate staff focuses on delivering a high quality living experience, promoting maximum health, wellness and happiness for every Cedar Lane resident.
