About United Way - Goderich

United Way Perth-Huron is a 100% local organization tackling #UNIGNORABLE issues like poverty, homelessness and mental health. We work to realize a brighter future across the communities we serve through research, advocacy, consultation and investment —addressing root causes. When you show your local love by donating or volunteering, you’re creating pathways out of poverty so everyone can reach their full potential.


United Way Perth-Huron and the community of Goderich are walking together on Feb 22nd, 2020 for the Coldest Night of the Year, to end chronic homelessness.


Homelessness isn’t just about sleeping on the streets. A person may be in a temporary shelter, incarcerated without a place to go afterwards or “couch surfing”. It affects almost every aspect of

life including family well-being, employment and physical and mental health.


In Huron County, 100 individuals identified themselves as experiencing homelessness during 2018.
