Friends of the Unemployed, Needy and Dispossessed
Abbeyfield Houses Society of Guelph is the incorporated charity which sponsors Fresh Start Housing Centre, Our Place Youth Centre and the Baker Street Art Gallery. This sponsorship is conducted through an operating component known as Abbeyfield Guelph FUND .
Abbeyfield Houses Society of Guelph purchased, upgraded and renovated the property at 40 Baker Street to provide a home for Freshstart and Our Place Youth Centre and the Baker Street Art Gallery – and as well now provides a home to other separately incorporated charitable organizations such as Ed Video, Chalmers Community Service Centre, Room For Us (Wellington) and Matrix Affordable Homes. As commercial tenants these latter organizations provide a sustainable economic base which in turn permits Abbeyfield Guelph FUND to act as an incubator for programs such as Fresh Start, Our Place Youth Centre, Our Shelter Network, and the Baker Street Art Gallery.
