About United Way - Goderich

The Goderich and Area Community Committee of Perth-huron United Way Perth-Huron 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.
