Masonic Homes of California
IIn 1898, the spirit of Masonic charity and the need to assist the widows and orphans of Masons led to the creation of the Masonic Homes of California. A California nonprofit corporation, the Masonic Homes of California provides care and support to Masons and their wives, widows, and families through two senior residential communities and statewide outreach services.

Masons of California
Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Through our culture of philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our brothers, our families, our communities, and our future.
The mission of the Masons of California, to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others, is carried out through Masonic principles and tradition.
Our mission is guided by the enduring and relevant principles of our fraternity:
• Brotherly love. We value respect, freedom, kindness, tolerance, and our differences – religious, ethnic, cultural, social, generational, and educational – and strive for harmony in our individual lives, in our lodges, and in the global community.
• Relief. We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.
• Truth. We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics – honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.
