 Shelterlink Fundraising Events

Saturday February 20rd, 2021 – Coldest Night of the Year

Why does Shelterlink fundraise?

There are several reasons:

  1. Shelterlink is a non-profit organization.
  2. The Provincial and Federal governments do not fund homelessness once it exists.
  3. Youth in Perth County need our help.

At Stratford Perth Shelterlink, our mission is to assist homeless youth and those at risk of becoming homeless. We do more than just assist in finding them a warm safe bed — we are actively working with youth to assist them in their pursuits, through education and skills development supports. We were recently the recipients of a grant through the Emergency Community Support Fund in conjunction with the local Stratford Perth Community Foundation. The grant allowed us to purchase laptops and upgrade our internet and purchase supplies for skills development programming. The staff and youth at the shelter are thrilled they will be able to carry on with education and pursue employment opportunities during the pandemic.

Stratford Perth Shelterlink are the proud recipients of a $7000 grant from the Emergency Community Support Fund with the assistance of the local Stratford Perth Community Foundation.

The grant was much needed support to our local Living Options for Youth and Emergency Community Placement Program which assists homeless youth, or those at risk of experiencing homelessness, during COVID 19.  COVID 19 cancelled a major fundraiser for our organization so we are grateful for the assistance to allow our programs to continue and our shelter to remain operational 24 hours a day.
