About Us

About us

Shelldale Family Gateway is a non-profit, community benefit, charitable organization that aims to enrich the quality of life for everyone it serves. Our respectful and multicultural approach strives to meet the needs of our diverse community offering programs and supports for children, youth and their families in over 30 languages. We provide an integrated service model through experienced staff and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.

We are centrally located within the Shelldale Centre at 20 Shelldale Crescent in Guelph, Ontario, a community hub for various services and organizations where we currently offer programs and services alongside other agencies such as Family and Children’s Services, Guelph Community Health Centre, Lutherwood and Immigrant Services. 

We are also a provider of EarlyON programs (ages 0-6)  through the County of Wellington, as well as specialized services through grants and donations designed specifically to support  the unique needs of children, youth, and families in Guelph’s Onward Willow neighbourhood.

As one of  The Grove Hub locations in Guelph, we work from one integrated location where there is a wide range of programs for every family member: infants, children, youth and their families. Programs are multicultural, and community-driven reflecting the ever-changing nature of the neighbourhood.

We provide a diverse range of programs for children and youth made possible entirely through donations, grants, fundraising events, and endowments.
