OUR MISSION

To passionately enrich the quality of life of individuals in our communities by helping the Alzheimer’s Association’s accomplish their vision, which is, A World Without Alzheimer's.

Helping Hits Home

Pat McKee, of McKee Homes, is all too familiar with the impact Alzheimer’s has on those who have the disease as well as their loved ones. Pat’s father, Joe, succumbed after a ten-year battle with this devastating disease. While Joe McKee had a long and successful career in business, he also built personal homes for his family. Alzheimer’s robbed him of his dream of one day becoming a builder. When Pat McKee and his brother, Mike, formed McKee Homes – to focus on building homes at The Cottages at North Ramsey and throughout the Fayetteville area – they dedicated the company to the memory of their father.

The McKee family – Pat, Mike and their mother, Shirley – wanted to do more to honor a beloved father and husband. In the hope that one day other families may not have to face the heartbreak wreaked by Alzheimer’s, they established the Joe McKee Memorial Alzheimer Fund. A percentage of every home sale by McKee Homes goes into this fund to support Alzheimer’s research and care. In addition, the McKees work closely with the Eastern North Carolina Service Area of the Alzheimer’s Association®, supporting efforts such as the Walk to End Alzheimer’s™.
