Guelph Gives!

We're thrilled to be a part of Guelph Gives again this December 1. We're raising funds for our Winter Survival Kit which provides gloves, hats and socks as well as blankets, sleeping bags and duffle bags to those in our community who are unstably housed or who face a cold winter on the streets. You can donate to the cause by clicking on our Donate Button. Every penny of the proceeds we receive go directly to purchasing supplies for this program. 

Thank you for considering!

Mental Health and Wellness Crisis Support Resources

Here's a list of Mental Health Crisis supports available in the community


We are committed to ...

working with our community to provide access to health programs and services and create opportunities for people to improve their well-being

We believe that...

Health is a resource for life and that many things - education, housing, social status, gender, access to health services, our sense of being included or excluded from society, employment and others - impact on our health. Health isn’t just about not being sick it is about being able to make choices and live with them. It’s about having a voice in our community, it’s about being able to hope and help your kids hope.
