Representing 12 municipalities and with over 100 dedicated staff, the Grande Spirit Foundation provides reasonably priced housing, quality care, and dignity to seniors and families.

The Grande Spirit Foundation was formed in 1960, although its roots go back to just after the Second World War. The municipal leaders of the region decided that a home for the Senior Citizens of the area was needed and in 1949 the first home was built.

FRIENDS OF THE GRANDE SPIRIT FOUNDATION

The generosity of the Peace region is outstanding. Since our volunteer group was founded, seniors have experienced that kindness firsthand.
HISTORY
The Friends of the Grande Spirit Foundation was established in 2001 in response to a donation made by the estate of a resident, and the change in operating assistance by the government from full coverage to costs for basic services. The Friends of the Foundation saw an opportunity to enhance the lifestyle in the homes by donations, grants and fundraising. The Friends of the Grande Spirit Foundation was established to oversee the administration of any funds donated or raised through fundraising activities.
