The Media Fellowship House is an organization that was formed in 1944, after two African American women and a baby were not served at a restaurant in town. Two white women who witnessed the discrimination took them to a different restaurant where they all were served. Media Fellowship House was born that day and continues to promote fellowship and understanding between diverse cultures and generations.
Media Fellowship House is also proud to provide a home for Surrey Services and its Media area seniors. Surrey, a non-profit organization, has been providing a full spectrum of specialized services to seniors throughout the community for over 35 years. Surrey works tirelessly to improve the lives of older adults in our community with its caring philosophy, holistic view and family centered approach.
