lakecity tiny home update - August 31, 2018
We have decided to extend the draw date of our TinyHome lottery to January 4, 2019. This extension has been approved by the Nova Scotia Division of Alcohol, Gaming, Fuel and Tobacco.
Any ticket holders that have already purchased tickets will have the opportunity to return them for a full refund if they choose to do so. That said, we are happy to honour each existing ticket as part of the lottery extension, so please consider holding onto your ticket in support of LakeCity Works.
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 two students who will help us build our first LakeCity TinyHome. This three-season, 20'x 8' tiny home (valued at $50,000) will be built on site over the course of eight weeks with support from the LakeCity Woodworking team and volunteers. The lucky winner will be announced on January 4, 2019! There will also be a second place prize of a set of outdoor 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 goal with this project is two-fold:
- Create awareness around the lack of affordable housing for persons with mental illness
- Generate funds to extend our services to youth with mental illness
HOW CAN you participate?
Tickets for the TinyHome can be purchased in-store at 386 Windmill Road in Dartmouth, NS or online.

HOW CAN YOU get INVOLVED?
There are tons of ways that you can help us build our TinyHome! Whether your company would like to provide financial assistance, volunteer for a day, or perhaps donate items that can be used in the home itself like electrical and plumbing fixtures, flooring or building supplies, we have a role for everyone. This project will take a lot of support to complete, and any and all help is welcome!
