WHAT IS THE LAKECITY TINYHOME LOTTERY?
LakeCity Works and its team of woodworkers, students and volunteers built a tiny house with the goal of increasing awareness around the lack of affordable housing for persons living with mental illness and to expand its services to young people living with mental illness. Our TinyHome traveled to Amherst, Chester, Hubbards, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Musquodoboit, Tantallon, Truro, Wolfville and HRM throughout its fundraising campaign, increasing awareness around affordable housing in Nova Scotia and raising over $68,000 (funds that will support LakeCity therapeutic services for young people living with mental illness).
Thank you to all the LakeCity staff, students, local businesses, community sponsors, government partners and volunteers who made this ambitious project a reality!
