about Laing House

“Laing House is a non-profit that is dedicated to empowering young people living with mental illness by providing well-rounded support in young people’s wellness plans, which leads to better outcomes. They offer quality, non-clinical, people-centered mental health support for youth up to age 29. They believe that social and peer support offer low-cost, low-barrier and sustainable options for enhancing mental wellness where their members can become agents of positive change for themselves and for others. 

Laing House offers a variety of programs through four main portfolios: Healthy Living, Community Navigation, Employment and Education and Peer Mentorship—one of the most important services for youth living with mental illness. Their programs feature staff support, as well as peer support and opportunities for member-to-member socialization in healthy, secure, inviting and non-judgmental environments. “

about the auction

In partnership with Laing House, we are going to auction gingerbread houses made by each TOA Team member.. Everyone is on board, baristas (don’t feel like they are underdogs, each and every one of them are artists in their own right) and bakers alike. We are a competitive bunch and hope to raise lots of needed money for this great organization. The auction will be held on our website on November 23 – November 30. Final results posted December 1st.

Special Thanks to Richard and Ashley of Applehead Studios
for donating their skills and time to photograph all of our houses!
