Medford Leas derives its special character from the extraordinary community of individuals who live and work here. Since 1971, when the first residents moved to Medford Leas, the Quaker principle of loving concern has attracted individuals eager to sample the life of such a community and, in turn, to enrich it with their own special gifts. Many residents volunteer in the wider community while others give of themselves to their Medford Leas neighbors and staff.
