Promoting Self-Help Can Lead to Self-Sufficiency
STREET HELP HOMELESS CENTRE OF WINDSOR
Helping the Homeless in the Windsor/Essex County for 17 Years!
Street Help Homeless Centre Of Windsor is a homeless drop-in centre operated by and for the homeless. We are a leading provider of services for the homeless.
Our ministry is to embrace Matthew 25:35-36: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
We are here to not only provide the homeless with services to better their own lives, but to give them an opportunity to help others equally in need. Who better to provide others with quality services than the ones who have been there and experienced the same circumstances. The homeless are the experts on what they need. The majority of our volunteers are those we serve – the homeless themselves. The homeless are involved in planning and the operation of our centre.
Through cooking, cleaning, and offering other support to their fellow homeless, our staff develops genuine skills and experience to apply to their resumes.
Our programs prove self-help can lead to self-sufficiency.

We assist the homeless by offering computers to find employment and housing, we feed them, we clothe them, and give them the support to find a better life.
