Support VON's COVID-19 Response 

Across Ontario and Nova Scotia, VON employees are on the front lines of the COVID-19 response. Our dedicated team of VON nurses and caregivers are delivering essential medical care in people’s homes, where they need to be. Key services are also being offered in new and safe ways, ensuring people have food security and virtual connection to social support. These efforts are essential, and in many cases help reduce further strain on our fellow medical professionals in hospitals.

As a registered charity, we direct your donations into efforts that ensure people can continue to access vital services safely, when and where they are needed most.

Help Us Build Healthy Communities

VON Canada started back in 1897 with a trailblazing idea that continues to inspire us today.  We wanted to help people who needed health care but couldn’t reach a doctor or hospital.  Now over 120 years later, we’re still giving that help to over 1 million Canadians every year so they can stay close to their families, friends and communities.

Our vision is still very simple.  We believe that every one of us deserves to live our lives to the fullest – and to receive care and comfort where our home is, and where our hearts are.   

We are determined to make that vision real for as many people as possible. Every day. Whether they are a lonely senior, a child with special needs, or someone caring for a loved one.  Our services range from home nursing and housekeeping assistance to community clinics, hospices, support for maintaining independence, and so much more.  

VON Canada can make such a big difference in people’s lives because of our incredible volunteers and donors. Donations are used to directly fund programs, to support important research and to strengthen our service delivery.  Volunteers help with home visits, Meals on Wheels, transportation services and many other supports we would not otherwise be able to offer.  Our volunteers and donors have such an important part to play.  Their support helps bring care and comfort to so many in our communities.

As a donor or volunteer, your support helps us ensure that the people we care for are able to stay in their homes and communities. To live every day to the fullest.
