Founded in 1957, Ivan Franko Homes has been providing accommodation and care services to Ukrainian seniors from across Canada for over 50 years.
Ivan Franko Homes’ “Our Future Together” Campaign is an ambitious, transformational plan to expand our picturesque 10-acre site at Winston Churchill Boulevard in Mississauga into an intergenerational “Selo” and multigenerational campus, to serve our community for the next 50 years.
Our Selo will include:
- A comprehensive range of living accommodations and programming to support aging in the community
- An intergenerational pavilion, recreational centre, “Lys Mykyta Lounge”
- Multigenerational programming for all ages
- Outdoor amenity areas that offer recreation, play, gardening, rest areas and heritage walking trails
- A renovation of our Museum, with its collection displayed throughout the Selo and educating younger generations of Ukrainian Canadians about our heritage
The $50 million Phase I deployment of our Selo strategy includes 232 long-term care, independent living garden and assisted living suites. This will enable spouses with different support requirements to not be separated by geography but to continue aging together on the same campus.
Plans are underway for Phase 1 of the redevelopment, to include not only a new building with accommodation for some 232 residents, but also an intergenerational pavilion, outdoor amenities, as well as renovations of the existing building and museum. Together we will give our community a place we can call home for generations to come.
Five differentiating and sector-leading principles will enable us to provide our residents with a genuinely transformative and inspiring retirement living, healthcare and cultural community experience:
- Enabling “Aging in Place”
- Selo as an Intergenerational Community & Cultural Hub
- Extraordinary Cuisine
- Outreach to Support Aging in Own Homes
- Transformative On-Site Personal &Technology Enabled Medical Care
Without significant community donations, it will be impossible to proceed with a new building. To assist in attracting major donations, sponsorship opportunities will be available through the naming rights to major components of the new building (e.g. dining room, library, museum, atrium, rooms, etc.).
Please contact Executive Director Terry Tonkovich at (905) 820-0573 to discuss options.
Tree of Love
Conceived by the Family Council (comprised of residents’ families as well as relatives of applicants awaiting placement), the “Tree of Love” represents the fundraising launch of Ivan Franko Homes’ Building Campaign. Its theme reflects the distinctive apple orchards featured on the Mississauga property.
Supporters can help contribute to the Capital Campaign by donating a leaf, bee or apple. It’s a tangible and permanent way to show support for the project and immortalize the name of a special loved one. Once the new building is completed, the “Tree of Love” will be prominently displayed in it.
