Outreach Program

About the Program

S.H.I.F.T’s Outreach Program is focused on prevention of homelessness, serving those living with low-income throughout South Simcoe.  The goal of the program is to connect individuals, couples, and families to urgently needed supplies, services, and supports as well as provide emergency assistance to those at-risk of or experiencing homelessness and/or food insecurity (housed or otherwise).

The Outreach team is mobile, 7 days a week, throughout the 5 municipalities that make up the area known as South Simcoe (Innisfil, Essa, Adjala-Tosorontio, Bradford/West Gwillimbury and New Tecumseth).  The team makes regular stops at established locations in each municipality several times per week.  The team will also make individuals appointments to meet up with participants at a location convenient for all.


Operations are based out of S.H.I.F.T. headquarters

at 123 Victoria St. W. in Alliston.
