Fife House stands in solidarity with those demanding answers and accountability from the Toronto Police Service. For far too long, #BIPOC and Trans women have been the victims of misconduct by law enforcement bodies. This needs to stop! #TPSWhatHappened #BlackLivesMatter #JusticeForCoco

As we approach the final months of 2020, Fife House would like to give special thanks to Delta Bingo Gaming's St. Clair Sponsors Association. We remain incredibly grateful for their phenomenal support. Without them, it would be impossible for some of our most critical frontline services to continue like the Homeless Outreach Program.

“When someone asks me why I enjoy working at Fife House, the first thing I think of is the Homeless Outreach Program. Seeing someone walk through those doors in one of the most challenging moments of their lives and then consequently seeing them walk out with a smile and sense of relief, and knowing you had a part in that, is a feeling that you never forget. Knowing that coming in to work every day means a difference in at least one person’s life, (through housing, finances, employment, etc.) makes everything worth it.”

Vaaraki is a Housing Stabilization Worker in Fife House’s Homeless Outreach Program.

Thanks to funds raised through Delta Bingo and Gaming, Vaaraki is able to make a difference in the lives of our clients.

We are excited to share an amazing opportunity from the Public Health Agency of Canada for members of our community that have living or lived experience with HIV and/or Hepatitis C. PHAC is preparing for a planned launch (Fall 2020) of open solicitations for the HIV and Hepatitis C Community Action Fund (CAF) and the Harm Reduction Fund (HRF) through which organizations can apply for federal grants and contributions that support time-limited community-based projects across Canada to reduce HIV, hepatitis C and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBI).

In order to engage and inform members of our community that have living or lived experience with HIV and/or Hepatitis C about their approach to these solicitations, PHAC has organized several planned engagement sessions in July as per the scheduled below.

Due to COVID-19, all sessions will be held using the Zoom Platform and available for dial-in by phone . Further guidance and instructions can be found at :
