Inexpensive Help for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities
CHFT has found out about two programs which provide inexpensive, practical help for seniors and adults with disabilities.
These two programs SAINTS and TIGP are supported by the Ministry of Health and the City of Toronto. The goal is to help people live in their own homes with assistance. Both programs connect high school students with people who need help completing housing chores. The programs expect the user to pay students $10 per hour for their services, which are to be done after school and on weekends.

Why your co-op should go through the 20/20 Vision Process
What is in your co-op’s future? Do you want your co-op to be the great community where people live together and feel good about your homes? The 2020 Vision is a process that will help your co-op look clearly at your community values, the quality of your management, governance and environmental sustainability.
Once you see all of this clearly, you can create a vision and plan for your own future.
The program aims to have all co-ops meet high standards of operation, whether you are coming out of your operating agreement or not. If you start planning for your future now, you are building a sound foundation for the future. Meeting these high standards of operation means that we can keep the housing we have, and secure it for the future.
CHFT offers expert support to get your co-op pointed in the right direction and keep it the strong, stable community ready for the future. For more information or to book someone to come to your co-op to help you through the process, please call Michelle Arscott at 416-465-8688 extension 207 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
