In the past, your donations have helped us ensure that no senior ever has to leave their home at UHO even if they outlive their financial resources. In Ottawa, the proportion of residents over 65 years old is projected to grow to 20% by 2031. Our registered charity needs your support now more than ever, to make sure no senior gets left behind.  

Every year, UHO gives over $80,000 to seniors in need of financial support. We need your help to do more. Donate today!
