About The Guesthouse Shelter

The Guesthouse Shelter and Community Hub (TGHS), through the Coldest Night of the Year campaign, wants to engage our community and raise funds to help those experiencing homelessness and raise awareness about the many issues to address and resolve the problem in our community.


TGHS is dedicated to providing food and shelter in a safe environment within North Simcoe that cares for those in physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual need. We strive to encourage understanding of the needs in our community regarding fundamental human rights to food and shelter. It is our goal that no one in North Simcoe County will be homeless.
