About Stratford/​Perth Shelter Link

Stratford/Perth Shelterlink serves youth between the ages of 16 and 24 who are either homeless or are at-risk of becoming homeless. We provide them with access to food, clothing, shelter, health care, counselling, addictions services, assistance with school, life skills, education, employment and housing.


On February 24th, we will be participating in The Coldest Night of The Year which is a 2k, 5k or 10k walk around the Avon River in Stratford.


Please join us by putting in a team, collecting pledges and walking with us. There will be hot food and warm drinks upon your return to Knox Church.


Our shelter program houses 150 youth per year in Perth County and we are in contact with about 3,000 youth and adults throughout the year who find themselves homeless at any given time.


This will be a fun event for families, work teams, sports teams, youth groups, church groups, corporations, businesses and other not-for-profits.


Let's show Perth County's homeless youth our warmth!
