Friends of the Colonel Belcher Society


Since the successful completion of the initial $2 million capital campaign and the opening of the new centre, the Friends have worked closely with Carewest Colonel Belcher staff to identify other needs. New buses, so important to the residents have been purchased with support from the Nickle Family Foundation, the Poppy Fund and other donors. Patio furniture was purchased, and a gazebo and fence built. Support to programs such as the Music Therapy Program are vital to the quality of life enjoyed by residents.

Current projects are shown on the Current Needs page. 

In addition, it is important to establish a fund which permits assurance that emerging needs are readily met.
