TORONTO (October 19, 2023) – The Solidifi Charitable Foundation (the “Foundation”) today announced that it has donated $100,000 to Covenant House Toronto. Covenant House is the largest agency in Canada serving youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk.

“As many as 40,000 young people in Canada experience homelessness every year, with an average of 6,000 young people with no place to sleep every night. Solidifi believes that everyone should have access to safe, permanent, and affordable housing with the support necessary to sustain it,” said Solidifi Charitable Foundation Chair and Real Matters Chief Executive Officer Brian Lang. “Our sincere thanks to the appraisers on our network whose ongoing contribution to the Solidifi Charitable Foundation help make these gifts possible. Together, we are proud to support Covenant House and the work they do to offer housing options, health and well-being support, training and skill development, and ongoing care once youth move into the community.”

Covenant House helps youth ignite their potential and reclaim their lives. As Canada’s largest agency serving youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk, Covenant House offers the widest range of services to hundreds of young people every day. More than a place to stay, Covenant House provides life-changing care with unconditional love and respect. For over 40 years, Covenant House has been dedicated to its mission of serving youth on the street and to protect and safeguard all youth with absolute respect and unconditional love. Since 1982, Covenant House has supported more than 100,000 young people.

“We are grateful for the contribution of Solidifi and its appraisers,” said Mark Aston, Executive Director of Covenant House Toronto. “Their support allows us to meet the emerging needs of our youth and accelerate our work.”

The Solidifi Charitable Foundation has been raising funds to support programs that help improve the lives of children since 2011. In addition to corporate contributions from Solidifi Canada, the Foundation is funded in part by the generosity of appraisers who participate in our Buck at a Time program through which they donate one dollar ($1) from every Solidifi assignment completed.
