S.H.I.F.T (Support and Hope for Individuals and Families Today) provides safe, respectful, and welcoming emergency overnight accommodation, meals and supports to those experiencing or at-risk of experiencing homelessness and/or food insecurity in South Simcoe. We are committed to facilitating connection to further services, resources, and community.

Volunteers serving in various roles within our organization every year.
A community that empowers change.
To partner with the individuals and families we serve to make a meaningful SHIFT in their circumstances.
We believe that homelessness and food insecurity are crises that a person is experiencing; and that this experience does not define a person. We embrace the values of respect, diversity and inclusion, education and prevention, empowerment, teamwork and collaboration and are committed to being housing-focused and client-centered.
S.H.I.F.T acknowledges that we are situated on the traditional land of the Anishnaabeg people. The Anishnaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. We are dedicated to honouring Indigenous history and culture and committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nation, Métis and Inuit people.
