In summer 2018, LakeCity Works built a tiny house with the twin goals of increasing awareness around the lack of affordable housing and expanding its services to young people living with mental illness. Throughout its fundraising campaign, our Tiny Home traveled across Nova Scotia and raised over $68,000.

This summer, thanks to the Canada Summer Jobs program, our team of expert woodworkers will be joined by talented youth to build our second tiny home. LakeCity sees the Tiny Home Lottery as an innovative way to raise funds for its services and programs – all of which benefit Nova Scotians aged 19 + living with mental illness within HRM. As such, we will keep raising awareness and fostering dialogue around two interconnected social issues that impact our clients: affordable housing and mental illness.
