An update from Heather McDonald, CEO

Heading into autumn, we have a chance to reflect on recent happenings at LOFT. I want to thank staff, volunteers and supporters for noteworthy accomplishments that continue to improve services for vulnerable populations.

In person for the first time in a long time

After three years of virtual meetings, we were thrilled to have 150 of LOFT’s community members come together for LOFT’s Annual Meeting. September 26th was an opportunity to celebrate our collective achievements and provided an evening of connections and reflection. The information shared at the Annual Meeting allowed us to learn more about LOFT’s impact this past year. It was also a chance to celebrate LOFT’s remarkable 70-year journey. Together, we have helped to improve the lives of countless people.

Earning the City’s thanks:

LOFT received a letter of recognition from Mayor Olivia Chow celebrating LOFT’s 70 years of service. In the letter, Mayor Chow and Councillor Mike Colle expressed the City of Toronto’s appreciation for LOFT’s customized and concrete solutions as a community service provider for people facing a combination of mental and physical health challenges. They thanked LOFT for helping our clients get the care they need to live full lives.
