90th Anniversary Campaign


Help us celebrate 90 years of value to our community!!

2017 is a very important year for all Canadians where we celebrate 150 years of this great Nation. For the majority of those 150 years VON has been caring for the needs of Canadians, and 2017 is a landmark year for us as well. It is 120 years since VON was founded, and it is the 90th anniversary of the creation of the Windsor Essex VON chapter.

For 90 years, VON Windsor-Essex has played an integral role in our community. Our staff and volunteers do their best every day to ensure that the people of Windsor-Essex continue to live longer, healthier lives, at home and in their communities, where they want to be.


Each donation impacts many people in our community and recognizes the importance that each individual has on a wellness-focused region. In recognition of VON Windsor–Essex’s 90th anniversary, please consider:

  • an independence giving donation of $90;
  • a monthly donation of $9/month;
  • or, a donation of $20.17 to recognize this important year in our history.

Programs and Services

Starting out as a nursing agency 9 decades ago, the Windsor-Essex branch has evolved to offer many programs that have helped build a healthier, more vibrant community. In addition to services helping newcomers, expectant mothers, student nutrition and workplaces, VON is a leader in senior and respite care. While VON is known for visiting nursing, other offerings help our elderly maintain their independence and age with a sense of self-fulfilment and dignity.

Since 1927, VON has built a reputation for compassion, dedication and service. VON employees and volunteers work to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of people in our community, every single day.  It’s about more than the professional care we offer – it’s about the way we deliver that care, with care. It’s about the bonds of trust that form between people. Staff, volunteers, donors and so many others, contribute to helping people who are frail or vulnerable to remain healthy, whole and independent.
