About Hope House Guelph

Hope House serves vulnerable people in Guelph – the unhoused and housed, the employed and the unemployed, those suffering a new, bewildering setback and those dealing with chronic, more complicated issues of poverty.


Since COVID-19, demand for our services nearly doubled and will inevitably continue to rise. Hope House must remain scalable and nimble to meet this emerging need. We are an independent local charity that is entirely funded by our community. Your participation in CNOY helps fund critical poverty relief services and will change lives.
