About Chalmers Community Services Centre


Here at Chalmers Community Services Centre, we strive to make our contribution a meaningful one. We’ve listened to our guests, and put together programs that reflect the needs we’ve heard. We offer a warm and respectful place where our guests can receive food, choose clothing and enjoy company and conversation. We provide these services free of charge to people who are unemployed, underemployed, between jobs or awaiting compensation.

Each month, we have over 490 visits from guests who come from around Guelph, and in 2015 we welcomed 9486 guest visits overall.

Who we are

CCSC has 3 staff members and over 90 volunteers who run our programs. We also have a Board of Directors who makes decisions about the overarching direction that CCSC is moving in. Together, we work as a team to provide meaningful and compassionate support to the guests who use our services.

Our Mission

We are an organization called to care, compassion and social justice. We provide food, referral, and support that enables those in need to become more self-reliant and socially connected.

Our Vision

Chalmers Community Service Centre has a vision of community, where people will find compassion, encouragement and respect in an environment of sincerity and hope.
