Bonaventure House opened its doors in March of 1989, serving as a facility that was neither hospital or hospice: it was a home for people with AIDS and a resource center that provided counseling and an array of supportive services.
In its beginning, Bonaventure House was a home for people to die with compassion and dignity. This wall is a reminder of our history. Bonaventure House now offers supportive housing programs and focuses on transforming the lives of our residents.
Our food services staff is committed to serving nutritious meals daily
Our family room is a place for residents to relax. A former staff member recently refurnished the room. Not shown are the many board games and books for residents to enjoy.
The conference room is a place where program groups, outside groups and meetings take place
Volunteers manage the spiritual care program
Each resident adds their own touch to their room - sometimes with Tweety!
The computer lab is equipped with three computers, a printer and a copier machine. It is open 24/7 for residents to check email, fill out applications and search for jobs.
The dining room is not only used for eating, but it is also used to hold house meetings, parties and presentations
Our reception desk is managed by volunteers Monday through Friday from 8:30 till 5:30. Paid staff work nights and weekends to ensure the safety of the house and residents.
Spiritual care is an optional program that includes many types of spiritual practice. Services include group discussions, retreats, and individual consultations.
We provide two hot meals a day to our residents. On weekends, residents cook for the community
Staff, volunteers, and residents work hard to provide a safe and encouraging home to all people in the house
