In 1986, the AIDS crisis was causing bewilderment, fear and suffering in Toronto. Those who were fighting for their lives used up their financial resources in their battle with AIDS, then found themselves ill and homeless.
In response to this crisis, the Brothers of the Good Shepherd established Barrett House. When it opened in
October 1986, Barrett House was Toronto’s first supportive housing residence for people living with HIV and AIDS.
Barrett House provides a dignified, caring and homelike environment for persons living with HIV and AIDS who require ongoing care.
Barrett House is dedicated to giving one-on-one attention to each of its residents. Volunteers and friends also tend to the residents’ emotional, psychological and physical needs.
Barrett House has 6 bedrooms, a dining room, a living room, a television room, a kitchen, a sun room and a landscaped garden. The house is equipped with an elevator for the convenience of residents who have difficulty walking. View Facilities
Barrett House receives funds from the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), the City of Toronto, Ministry of Health-AIDS Bureau and private charitable contributions.
You can support a caring future for people living with HIV and AIDS by remembering Barrett House in your will.
