Our Operations


To be accepted for admission to the homes, persons must be in need of accommodation and of an age which indicates that they are unable to maintain their own home. They must be recommended to the Admissions Committee by a Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul after investigation of their circumstances, and must be physically able to take care of themselves.

Since the homes are operated by a charitable organization, residents are not compelled to pay for their keep. Some residents however, do have families which make contributions towards the cost of their care.

From the earliest days (1953), the Franciscan Missionary Sisters have been instrumental in the administration of the home as a work of mercy, and have done so on a voluntary basis. In recent times however, it has become necessary to recruit paid staff to assist with the administration of the homes.

The homes can currently provide accommodation for 60 persons.
