    All funds raised by A Taste for Life go directly to Fife House, an
innovative and client-focused North American leader in its delivery of
services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Services focus on enhancing quality
of life, building on individual strengths and promoting independence - a key
determinant of which is access to secure and affordable housing. Through its
three supportive housing facilities, Fife House provides 80 per cent of the
available supportive housing for persons living with HIV/AIDS in the GTA.
Other services include the Homeless Outreach Program and the Transitional
Housing program. In 2008, Fife House was able to provide much needed services
to 493 persons living with HIV/AIDS.
