Our story…

Hesperus Village in Vaughan, Ontario is a seniors' affordable housing residence offering an independent lifestyle and a rich quality of life. Half of the apartments are rent-geared-to-income units. Hesperus is surrounded by a protected green space on a wooded ravine along the East Don River. Hesperus balances the strengths of a strong institutional organization with the nurturing aspects of a caring community. Hesperus encourages interactions between the generations, people of diverse cultures, people on various spiritual paths and those with a variety of skills, interests and talents. The majority of seniors do not want to go into long term care nor would they need to, IF we had more places like Hesperus. Living and growing and sharing their lives 'in community' our residents find an extended family to be part of in their elder years.


A rich cultural life, in its varied forms, enhances the health and lives of our residents. Social isolation is unfortunately very common for seniors. Together with our residents, we co-create an enlivened and rich social and cultural life to combat the isolation that some encounter due to physical or emotional challenges or even financial constraints. Your donation will fund the costs associated with organizing a series of social and cultural activities throughout the year.
