About Sherbrooke Foundation

veteran with CEO Kim Schmidt

Who we are

When Sherbrooke Community Centre was founded in 1972, its board and leaders envisioned a bright future for the long-term care home. They saw how elder care could be, not how things typically were. This vision continues today: to be the best place to live and the best place to work. In that order.

The founders included representatives from the Anglican, Roman Catholic, and Mennonite churches, with additional members from the Residents, Veterans, the United and Presbyterian churches joining the board later.

In 1986, the board determined that a foundation should be established to raise and steward funds, and Sherbrooke Foundation was born.

Central Haven Special Care Home joined with Sherbrooke in 2006.

The Eden Alternative® philosophy advocates for the well-being of the whole person and guides the approach to care at Sherbrooke and Central Haven. Both homes strive to create an inclusive and vibrant community for every person to enjoy purpose, connection, empowerment, and possibility, regardless of age or changing abilities.

Our foundation serves these two homes to provide funding support for these life-affirming initiatives, thanks to our generous supporters.

What we do

Thanks to our donors, Sherbrooke Foundation supports enhancements and equipment needs for both of our homes. Ultimately, their donations are making life better for elders.

Over the years, the foundation has funded kitchen renovations, windows for residents’ rooms, pressure-relieving mattresses, a new bus, the Sherbrooke gazebo, the Central Haven patio, and much more. The renovations starting soon to spa rooms in the Marleau/Wyant neighbourhoods—and to closets at Central Haven—were made possible through donor support.
