Mennonite Services Northwest

A Management and Consulting Company Providing Life-Enriching Services


Mennonite Management Services (MMS) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mennonite Services Northwest (MSNW) of Albany, OR and a management and consulting company with expertise in providing life-enriching health and housing services to the aging and to individuals experiencing developmental disabilities.

Mennonite Management Services was formed in 2013 to manage both Corvallis Caring Place, Corvallis, OR and Macdonald Residence, Portland, OR. MMS and MSNW are sponsored by Mennonite Health Services (MHS) Alliance of Goshen, Indiana.


MSNW was created out of Mennonite Village (MV), an accredited, nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). MV's executive staff has been involved in various types of consulting throughout the organization's 67-year history.

In 2006, Mennonite Village (MV) was approached by the board of Corvallis Caring Place (CCP) to be its management partner. This management agreement reaffirmed a relationship that began when MV consulted in the development of CCP, a nonprofit, 42-unit assisted living facility. Through this experience, MV came to realize there was a lack of nonprofit management companies to work with smaller organizations who serve the aging and other vulnerable groups. MV subsequently formed MSNW and MMS to fill that void. MMS assumed the management of CCP in 2013. In 2014, the board of Macdonald Center of Portland, OR granted MMS a contract to manage Macdonald Residence, a unique assisted living community in Portland, OR whose residents are dependent upon Medicaid.
