Medford Leas is sponsored by The Estaugh, a not-for-profit corporation founded in 1914 by the Society of Friends (Quakers). The Estaugh began its long history as a simple not-for-profit boarding home in Haddonfield, New Jersey, dedicated to providing care for older adults. In 1971, the expansion of this original mission resulted in a transformation and relocation from boarding home to the creation of Medford Leas Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Medford, New Jersey.
