The Challenges

Real estate prices in downtown cities continue to go up. Pricing out millennials out — many of whom may not have that “family assistance” for their first time mortgage.

For the first time, gay men are retiring en masse. Prior to now, HIV took many too soon. Now they require educated, compassionate care.

L-word generation women demand an inclusive and community-connected living as they retire. They need the space and environment to foster a community.

Many charities have prime real estate and clear demands to deliver more to their target constituents — whether it be HIV survivors, low income housing — or other related needs.

 
 

OUR CHARITY PARTNERS

At the federal, provincial and regional level, all levels of government recognize the increasing demand for affordable housing.  And the LGBTQ+ community has unique needs that needs to be met.

To help deliver some of these services, we will look to leverage a “Second Chances” workforce.  Team with organizations that help LGBTQ+ refugees or homeless youth — once their immediate and urgent counselling and care needs are met — provide training and support to help give them their first Canadian jobs and build trade skills.
