Opened in 2001 by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM), Mary’s Woods is a continuing care retirement community in Lake Oswego that operates as a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. Unlike for-profit communities, Mary’s Woods reinvests profits into the community to further the mission and vision. We are here to serve residents, not corporate shareholders.
