About our programs

For more than 40 years, Wyndham House has opened its doors to thousands of youth in Guelph and Wellington.

If you are in a situation where you need a place to stay for one night or for much longer, Wyndham House is there to help.

What is Wyndham House?

Wyndham House is an organization that provides young people 16 to 25 with the supports and services needed to overcome challenging times and difficult problems. Wyndham House has a combination of long term and short term residential beds available.

If you don’t need a place to stay but are looking for other supports and services you are welcome to come to our Youth Resource Centre.

The Youth Resource Centre can help you with things such as: getting or replacing I.D.; bus tickets; help with High School registration; transportation to the Food Bank; access to a Nurse Practitioner; food and coffee daily; as well as get you hooked up with a place to shower and/or get your laundry done if you need it.
