An Update from Heather McDonald, CEO

Our collective impact on individuals facing homelessness, substance use, and mental health challenges is truly significant. Your rapid and generous responses serve as the foundation of hope for our community.

As spring unfolds, you are invited to join us for open houses to witness our impactful work, where your participation strengthens community bonds and deepens our shared mission understanding.

I’m thrilled to announce that LOFT has received the Non-Profit Employer of Choice (NEOC) Award for 2023. This recognition reflects the extraordinary dedication of our staff and the positive work environment we’ve collectively nurtured. Your ongoing support has been instrumental in establishing LOFT as one of Canada’s premier non-profit employers.

Another notable achievement is that LOFT has been accredited under Imagine Canada’s Standards. This accreditation underscores our commitment to operational excellence, adhering to best practices in key areas. It positions us among a community of non-profit organizations dedicated to creating a lasting impact.

Additionally, we’re expanding our impact with Life Enrichment Services, including Transitional Age Youth and Adult Supportive Housing Services. Thanks to donor generosity and regional funding, this initiative supports diverse needs, emphasizing connection, reducing isolation, and building crucial life skills.

A heartfelt thank you! Together, we’re forging a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
