Help Secure a Future for a Tampa Landmark

A National Historic Registry landmark, The Home Association sits on 4.5 acres in Tampa’s Ybor Heights area as a home for the elderly. While its history of care dates to 1899, the Colonial Revival building where the seniors reside was constructed in 1924 at a cost of $110,000. She’s a grand lady getting up in age, yet her wrinkles still have twinkles thanks to the generosity of patrons in the Tampa community who cherish Tampa’s past and want to insure The Home Association building thrives throughout the 21st century.

  • Spring Luncheon Brings Back Memories

    Springtime at the Home Association was full of memories, as supporters gathered for a midday luncheon under the sprawling oak that shades the Susan W. Leisner Garden.

  • President’s Garden named for Susan W. Leisner

    Susan W. Leisner knew a garden on the grounds of The Home Association would be dedicated to past presidents of the association's board of managers.  What she later learned is that the garden would be named for her.
