Fall Update from Heather McDonald, CEO

Responding to unmet needs and supporting clients

According to Statistics Canada, more than two in five Canadians have reported being affected by rising food prices and the high cost of living. While times have been tough, many are fortunate enough to adjust spending habits or tap into savings. For our clients, there is no safety net. Our leadership team is working with funding partners to provide greater financial support to those who need it most, but there is more to do. It requires all of us to work together.

Many of our clients are experiencing increased isolation, depression, and substance use. Caring for the whole person is more important than ever. LOFT’s goal is to provide our clients with the support they need to achieve their optimal health and well-being.

We are growing. Together with our partners, donors and staff, we have expanded services for youth, adults and seniors.

During these challenging times, we thank you for consistently walking alongside us to respond to unmet needs and support our clients.

Annual Home for the Holidays Concert

We had plans to return to an in-person concert. Unfortunately, with the ongoing pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to not hold our annual holiday concert this year to ensure continued safety for all.
