1874-2019: Celebrating 145 Years
We at the McCormick Care Group are extremely proud to have celebrated 145 years of providing care in London. It is with sincere gratitude that we continue to honour the legacy established by the many dedicated individuals before us who sought to meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable members.
The McCormick Care Group was founded in 1874 as the Women’s Christian Association, and throughout its history has sought to fill service gaps in the provision of care in London. It began by opening a soup kitchen in the Covent Garden Market and the Women’s Refuge and Children’s Home on Grey Street. From there, philanthropic efforts grew to include ministering to the needs of the aged and the sick.
