Noble has donated to the Huntley Traditional Housing program, a Toronto facility for HIV/AIDS patients in the Shelter System.

Noble has sponsored a third of all in-kind building product donations for this project, including plumbing fixtures and heating and cooling equipment.

The Huntley Transitional Housing Program is an innovative approach to providing support for individuals living with HIV/AIDS who are in, or are entering, the City of Toronto’s emergency shelter system. The 20-bed facility provides crucial housing, clinical care and intensive case management supports, focused on the successful transition of clients from shelter living into supportive or permanent housing solutions. The program aims to improve care and outcomes of clients and significantly reduce preventable hospital and shelter stays through the provision of wrap-around, client-centered supports, that increase quality of life and client capacity to live independently in our community.

“Noble has always been committed to supporting community initiatives in the areas where we do business” said Jim Anderson, General Manager, Noble Corporation, in a release. “We are extremely proud to be associated with this worthy cause. It all started with a conversation between project contractors and Stephen Willmets, our downtown Toronto Branch Manager. Recognizing the scope and importance of this project, we partnered with some of our manufacturers — American Standard, Fujitsu and Rheem — to increase product donations and overall level of sponsorship.”

Fife House Foundation’s Capital Campaign for the project raised more than $1.8 million in private and public contributions and an additional $250,000 in in-kind donations. The building was thoughtfully designed to accommodate this new program by architects at HOK and was built by TGA-ARS. Among the campaign’s major funders and donors are the Government of Canada, Government of Ontario, City of Toronto, Clark Family Foundation, TD Bank Group, BMO Financial Group, The Rotary Club of Toronto, Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network and Noble. An opening ceremony was held on Monday, November 4th.
