Long and Proud History in Toronto
Founded in 1988, Casey House was the nation’s first stand-alone treatment facility for people with HIV/Aids and the first free-standing hospice in Ontario. During this time, the average life expectancy for people living with AIDS was nine months, and many of them were dying alone and cut off from the support of family and friends due to stigma and misplaced fear. The founders of Casey House believed that everyone deserves to be cared for with dignity and compassion.
Fast forward to today, and Casey House is now Ontario’s HIV/AIDS hospital. And they are still one of the few places where people with HIV/AIDS can seek care without judgment.
