About Us

Who are we?

Message from the Executive Director

Art Mathews - Executive DirectorSince November 2016 I have had the honour of acting as the Executive Director for Broadview Village, a Ministry Unit of The Salvation Army. Over the last 45 years Broadview Village has provided supports and services to individuals identified as having developmental disabilities and/or a dual diagnosis both residentially and in day programs – all within a Christian framework. The concepts of love, grace, acceptance, inclusion and dignity-for-all are central to not only our operating philosophy but also our day-to-day service delivery. We work with people to make their lives better and our lives are made better in return.

Our History

From a Broadview property history dating back to 1825 to The Salvation Army purchasing the 75-year-old mansion in 1941 to create The Nest, a children’s home, to a new mission and birth of Broadview Village in 1975, there is a deep and rich history. Broadview Village today has grown into a network of thriving communities of residential homes and day programs all with unique histories of their own.
