Transforming Young Lives: Your Generosity in Action

The power of hope and community support.

Regina’s journey with LOFT’s Transitional Aged Youth (TAY) program reflects the impact of your support.

Regina experienced anxiety and depression, and when she began having trouble balancing her academic responsibilities and social relationships, she knew she needed to reach out for help.

LOFT’s TAY program offers support and resources to young adults facing the challenges of adulthood. Specifically designed for youth aged 16-24, the program includes a wide range of services such as mental health counselling, employment assistance, educational support, life skills training, housing solutions, and connections to community resources.

Regina came to LOFT to get help with her mental health, build a community, and learn healthy ways to handle anxiety and depression. The TAY program connected her with crucial supports and introduced her to a community through its social and treatment groups like Creative Writing and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).

“I enjoy interacting with LOFT staff; I appreciate our relationships and connection,” Regina shares. “LOFT has helped me learn skills to deal with coping in the moment when I’m having anxiety or depression.”

Regina recently graduated from LOFT’s Transitional Aged Youth Program and has maintained a spot on the honour roll and Dean’s list at Humber College. Your contributions help us support more youth like Regina and foster a community of hope and transformation.
