In 1886, when Chicago was teeming with European refugees seeking shelter and employment, the fledgling Swedish Covenant Church established the Home of Mercy in Chicago to care for the elderly, orphans and invalids.

The Home of Mercy continued its service through the 19th century when the immediate needs of the seriously ill necessitated the creation of a hospital. Delano Hall was opened in 1903. The facility was later renamed Swedish Covenant Hospital.

With the establishment of the hospital, the Home of Mercy expanded its capacity to care for long-term residents. In 1928, the Home of Mercy was rebuilt and renamed Covenant Home. It was rebuild again in 1997, continuing an unbroken heritage of service that began in 1886.

The ministry of CRC expanded steadily over the years, becoming what it is today--a network of 14 retirement communities in eight states.
