About Trinity Village

Trinity Village is a not-for-profit charitable organization owned by Lutheran Homes Kitchener-Waterloo, a ministry of the Eastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. Comprised of the Terraces, the Studios, the Care Centre, and the Adult Day Program, Trinity Village is designed to offer progressive stages of living and specialized care.

At Trinity Village, our mission is to be a caring community that values and fosters the worth and lifestyle of all.

The Grand Parade is our biggest annual fundraising event we participate in. It is a fundraising walk for those who live, work, visit, and are friends of Trinity Village.

This year we will be raising money to EXPAND RESIDENT AND COMMUNITY SERVICES at Trinity Village.
