House of Lazarus to hold an online auction


When a transport truck rolls in with a special donation, you know that great things are about to happen. House of Lazarus was delighted to receive a truck load of staging items donated by Stage Fright Staging & Decorating Inc.. The items include bedding, throw pillows, accessory tables, dining tables, artwork, chairs and much more! All items are in great condition.

Peter and Helen Ross and the staff of Peter Ross Auction Services Ltd have graciously donated their time to organize a special online auction of these furnishings for HOL.

“This auction comes at a time when housing insecurity is at an all time high,” stated Cathy Ashby, Executive Director of House of Lazarus, “Revenue raised through the online auction will go towards our housing programs.” 

House of Lazarus offers several housing programs: Handyman Heroes provides urgent housing repairs; Heat for the Holidays provides wood to heat homes; Places for People provides affordable housing units; South Dundas Community Hub and Warming Centre offers resources locally and provides beds, showers and warm meals to those unhoused; Hope Bags contain essential items that are handed out by the OPP to people who are experiencing homelessness, and The Last Resort Program offers resources to keep people housed or to house people. “Unfortunately, there are people in our community who are experiencing homelessness or at great risk of becoming unhoused. The funds raised through this auction will help us to continue to offer support and resources to those with housing needs. We are grateful that we live in a community that is supportive to the needs of others,” said Cathy. 

The online auction will open on January 12, 2024 at 12:00 noon and close on Thursday, January 18, at 6:00 pm (staggered soft close). To access the auction, visit

House of Lazarus has food banks in Mountain and Ingleside and offers many outreach programs. For more information about HOL programming and resources, visit:
