A Heritage of Community Benefit

WesleyLife Started With a Gift of Property

The famed Chamberlain Estate on Des Moines’ Grand Avenue was donated to the South Iowa Methodist Church Conference over 70 years ago. Since 1947, WesleyLife has worked to have a profound, direct impact on our residents, team members, the participants with our network of home-based solutions and the community at large. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, we count on corporate partnerships and donations to continue that mission.
