Masonic Villages' caring communities and services assist individuals, families and children in realizing their potential and enjoying the highest possible quality of life through the traditions of Freemasonry. While the villages are built upon and strengthened by Masonic values, Masonic Villages' residences and services are open to everyone.

The Masonic Villages of Pennsylvania has extended its mission by way of expansion of campuses and services and affiliation with similar organizations. The Masonic Village at Lafayette Hill was founded in Philadelphia as the Masonic Home of Pennsylvania in 1871 and relocated to 20 acres in suburban Montgomery County in 1976. In 2004, this community affiliated with the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown, which was founded as the Masonic Homes in 1910. The Masonic Village at Warminster was founded in 1929 in suburban Philadelphia as the Eastern Star Home-East, which affiliated with the Masonic Homes in 1998. The Masonic Village at Sewickley was founded in 1984 as the Valley Care Nursing Home in suburban Pittsburgh and joined the Masonic Homes in 1999. The campus has since expanded into a life care community. In 2004, the four communities standardized their name and brand, becoming the Masonic Villages. The Masonic Village at Dallas was founded in 2005 on the grounds of the Irem County Club in the Endless Mountain region of northeastern Pennsylvania.

Based on their "Mission of Love" values of quality of life, respect for the individual, quality service and outreach, the Masonic Villages serve more than 2,865 residents across a full continuum of retirement living, personal care and nursing care services.

Understanding people have varying needs at different stages of life, the Masonic Villages serve thousands of individuals through a variety of home and community-based services, including: adult day care, a children's home, clinical services, a home for adults with developmental disabilities, home care, home health, hospice, an outreach program, pharmacy services, transitional care units for short-term rehabilitation and wellness centers because of the support offered by the approximately 2,865 staff across its five campuses.

In 2017, through the charity of Pennsylvania Freemasons, their families and others who have contributed to its mission, Masonic Villages provided charity care worth approximately $48.9 million throughout the state to individuals unable to pay for their care.
