About Northern Huron Connection Centre

United Way Perth-Huron's Northern Huron and Area Community Committee invites you to walk with them to end chronic homelessness.


Walk in support of the newly opened Northern Huron Connection Centre; a welcoming place offering basic needs such as light meals, a shower, washroom facilities and laundry along with support through partnerships with numerous agencies.


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.
