United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin’s Home for Good campaign is a bold call-to-action to solve homelessness in our community.
Through the generosity of our community, we will raise $5 million to build homes for people experiencing homelessness in Guelph and Wellington.
The immediate focus is to raise the capital investment required to complete three projects that will contribute 72 supportive housing units in Guelph over the next year.
This solution will provide people experiencing chronic homelessness with consistent social and emotional support. Called ‘Permanent Supporting Housing (PSH)’ this can include programs supporting mental health, wellness, and food security. While not the only solution, PSH is life and system changing.
Funds raised through the Home for Good campaign will support three PSH projects, including Kindle Communities, Stepping Stone, and Wyndham House, and will move our community toward a 50% reduction in homelessness.
The Home for Good Campaign is a public commitment and invitation to solve homelessness in our community. Guelph and Wellington County have been working hard on this issue for many years and we have the data to show these three projects will go a long way in reaching our goal.
