LOFT is proud to offer a wide range of community health programs supporting both youth and adults.
LOFT Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Programs offer services to youth up to the age of 26 who face challenges with mental health, physical health and/or substance use. We serve young people from a wide range of gender, racial and cultural communities. We strive to provide an equitable, non-judgmental environment for youth to receive the support they need to recover.
We believe when youth are given trust and responsibility, they can transform their lives. At LOFT, our goal is to develop an empathetic and hopeful relationship with each client. We seek to engage and support our youth and to build upon each individual’s personal strengths to encourage independence. We take a holistic approach, embracing mind, body and soul to ensure each client receives services appropriate to his or her unique needs. We also work closely with other needed support services and caregivers, as directed by the client.
We provide individual and group counselling, social drop-ins, case management, community support, supportive housing models and 24-hour phone and text support.
Our youth programs include:
LOFT Adult Services offer a range of housing and support services for men and women ages 16 to 64 who are facing challenges with mental health, substance abuse and homelessness or the risk of homelessness.

Each of our programs offers services tailored to clients’ distinct needs. These services may include case management, system navigation, referrals to additional health care and social services and assistance with daily living activities.
