Ontario is moving forward with it's Social Impact Bonds (SIBs). The RAFT was one of four organizations selected to run a pilot project based on their SIB idea.
The RAFT is one of only four organizations shortlisted from among 83 proposals to participate in piloting and business case validation for the first Social Impact Bond (SIB) in Ontario. If you’re curious about what a Social Impact Bond is you can ask Michael Lethby, Executive Director of RAFT.
Six years ago we started offering a youth homelessness prevention program called Youth Reconnect. This was a large undertaking for us as it represented a completely new strategic direction for our services and was being piloted in a largely rural community approximately 50 kilometers away
One component of The Orange Door Project is The Home Depot’s national fundraising campaign. From now until July 2, The Home Depot customers can buy a $2 paper door in support of a local youth-focused housing charity.
There are many ways that you can help The Raft programs and services for youth.
