Could You Thrive on $6.65?
Every day, Fife House clients cope with the reality of having only $6.65 to spend on food; a tough task considering steady increases in prices. From April 1-7, 2013, senior staff, board members and stakeholders of Fife House Foundation drastically restricted their personal food budgets to $6.65 a day to help understand and draw attention to, the poverty and struggle of Fife House’s clients; most of whom live below the poverty line.

This year, Fife House has joined with the INSPIRE Awards, their sponsors and other community organizations to help promote the event and encourage nominations. Awards are give in the following categories:
- Lifetime Achievement Award
- Person of the Year
- Youth of the Year
- Positive Business of the Year
- Inspiring Community Organization of the Year
- LUX Award for the Arts
The honourees in each category are considered through community nominations and selected by a Jury Panel formed of representatives of the INSPIRE Awards Board of Directors, Presenting and Community Partners, and members of the LGBTQ community. Celebrations take place at an annual summer event and the title holders and nominees in each category go on to march in the Toronto Pride parade.
Fife House was instrumental in convening the Community Roundtable on HIV, Housing, Aging, Complex Care & Cognitive Issues.
In response to the report, Fife House submitted an application to the AIDS Community Action Program (ACAP) for a multi-agency pilot project to begin to address gaps in services identified for this population. The full report of this multi agency and governmental group is now available - click here.
We have received agreement from Public Health Agency Canada - ACAP for funding for this pilot project. We will be posting a description of the project on our website shortly.
