A recommendation adopted at the 1958 convention of Supreme Chapter provided for the appointment of a large committee to study retirement homes and to consider the feasibility of establishing a P.E.O. Home on a regional or international basis.

In the following years several state P.E.O. Homes were established. They were all state projects. The houses in Mount Pleasant, Iowa; in Alhambra and San Jose, California; in Knoxville, Illinois; in Saint Joseph, Missouri; and in San Antonio, Texas are now closed.

Still open and fully operational are the homes in Beatrice, Nebraska; in Caldwell, Idaho; and in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The home in Alhambra, California is now considered a former P.E.O. home.

The Colorado P.E.O. Chapter House was purchased by Colorado State Chapter and was opened October 1, 1966. It is not a nursing home. All residents must be medically independent. The Chapter House is financed by monthly resident fees, bed and breakfast receipts, gifts and endowments, and $2.00 per capita from the dues of all Colorado P.E.O.s as well as by donations resulting from activities held there.

The Chapter House is located in a beautiful nine-acre park in the scenic, southwestern area of Colorado Springs. Many cultural advantages are available to the residents in this area of the city.
