Message from President & CEO, Don Davidson

St. Joseph’s Villa has been caring for my family for many years. As a family members and caregivers, my family and I have been touched by the care and compassion that St. Joseph’s Villa staff provide. The Villa has a special place in my heart, as do our residents their families and the community that we serve.

For over 40 years, the Villa Foundation has been living the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph. I am proud and honoured to lead us and our team, including our dynamic volunteer board of directors, chaired by Dave Curto, into the future and continue supporting the Villa, as it expands its scope of care.

Somewhere along our life’s journey, we all may need specialized, compassionate care. Our team actively mobilizes our community, creates deep and lasting partnerships and advocates for change that will not only affect residents, families and caregivers today but well into the future. 

Thanks to the generosity and inspiration of our donors, volunteers and community partners, together, we have been able to create a better home and a better life for thousands of residents and families.  

Together our future is bright! We thank you for your kindness and friendship. We know that with your support, anything is possible!

Don
