Providing Affordable Housing for Seniors

Housing Every Citizen with Dignity

Today, senior citizens and the physically handicapped have a recognized need for accessible and affordable housing. The mission of the John H. Wellons Foundation, Inc. is to answer this need and provide dignified alternatives.

Through the Foundation's initiatives, hundreds of seniors and handicapped persons are living today in modern, comfortable, affordable apartments. More than 30 locations throughout NC, SC and VA already have been built, renovated or are currently under construction. Each unit is carefully planned and built or renovated to provide every convenience possible for its residents.


A Mission to Make a Difference in North Carolina

Founded in Dunn, NC by its namesake in 1950, the John H. Wellons Foundation, Inc. was created from a commitment to the residents of the local community and throughout North Carolina. Mr. Wellons operated the Wellons Candy Company successfully for twenty years employing as many as 250 employees.

Throughout his life, Mr. Wellons was deeply involved with his church, as well as serving on the board of numerous civic organizations and universities. His heartfelt compassion for others has since guided the Foundation members. In its early years, the Foundation provided deserving students with college loans. To answer the changing needs of the fast-growing NC population, it has since expanded to provide the development and management of senior housing apartments.


Wellons Foundation Management Services has specialized in managing affordable properties since 1990.
