Collaboration has long been at the heart of LOFT’s success. When Grace Toronto Church reached out to us about working together, we knew it was an opportunity to make an incredible impact.
The vision was truly inspirational. The goal was to transform a property into Tabitha House, a home providing housing security for young women with mental health and addiction challenges. LOFT’s decades-long experience creating and administering supportive housing is the foundation on which it was built.

Our successful partnership with Grace Church Toronto is an exciting roadmap for future projects. It brings together LOFT’s supportive-housing expertise and likeminded people who want to create warm, peaceful spaces for those experiencing housing insecurity through their donations and volunteerism.
Through this model, organizations or individuals can offer mentorship, friendship or fundraising support, while LOFT works with residents in their journey towards an independent and dignified life.
Turning a house into a home takes love, dedication and resources. With careful thought going into every detail, from adding comfy furniture to setting up Christmas decorations, Grace Toronto Church truly went above and beyond with their care for Tabitha House. This is the level of care we want to provide to all LOFT clients. However, there simply isn’t enough funding to provide even the most basic details like warm bedding, kitchen supplies, or even additional furniture for many of our other LOFT sites.
You can be a part of the growth of this model. It is through partnerships like this that communities can come together to support those who need it the most. You can make a house a home for a LOFT client today.
We would love to hear from you.
