What is the LakeCity TinyHome Lottery?

This summer, through the support of the Federal Government’s Canada Summer Jobs Program, we will be working with 2 students who will help us build a Tiny House. The 3-seaso, 20" x 8"tiny home will be built on site over the course of 8 weeks with support from the Lake City Woodworking Team and volunteers. The lucky winner will be drawn on October 5th! There will also be a second place prize of a set of outdoors plastic chairs made from recycled plastics (valued at $2500) and a third place prize of a handmade wooden display cabinet (valued at $1725).


Why are we building a tiny home?

Our goals with this project are twofold:

1) Create awareness of the lack of affordable housing for persons with mental illness

2) Generate funds to extend our services to youth with mental illness
