Corporate Profile

Fife House is Canada’s largest provider of supportive residential programming and housing services for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA). Fife House houses more than 300 individuals, and serves close to another 300 clients each year through our Homeless Outreach Program. While this is significant, it is estimated that the Greater Toronto Area has 18,000 people living with HIV/AIDS, and these are only those individuals who are aware of their status. This represents about 25% of all the cases in Canada. Today Fife House provides 80% of the supportive housing available to people living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto.

With a mandate to provide supportive housing, programming, and support services to hundreds of residents and clients, Fife House operates seven residences/programs that offer services through a network of qualified staff and volunteers. At any given time, residents/clients can call on these support services. These residences/programs are:
