J.A. DESÈVE RESIDENCE 

The J.A. DeSève Residence ensures the well-being of seniors experiencing homelessness. They cannot fall back on other senior homes because they have low incomes and complex challenges. Living conditions on the streets caused these men to age prematurely. 

More and more seniors find themselves on the streets for the first time.

We need to find solutions. Ageing with dignity must be a priority.
