Despins Charities operates Résidence Despins and Villa Aulneau, seniors’ residences in St. Boniface. We create warm, welcoming homes that ensure the physical, social, mental and spiritual well-being of our residents. We offer a range of independent living and supportive housing for seniors and are part of a long tradition of hope and compassion inspired by the spirit of Saint Marguerite d’Youville and the Grey Nuns as well as a long tradition of service by the Missionary Oblates Sisters. Our services respect the dignity of each individual and are attentive to the cultural and linguistic needs of the residents.
