The Board of Directors of Hillcrest Lodge realised that there was a serious gap in support for vulnerable seniors and creatively came up with the current model of assisted housing for those in need. In 2008 the dream was a reality and Hillcrest Lodge became home for 30 very happy residents.

To date Hillcrest Lodge in Orillia, Ontario, may be the only facility in Canada that offers stable, comfortable housing, three nutritious meals a day and support to seniors that might otherwise be homeless.
