Shelldale Center

The Shelldale Centre

With over 18 years of experience we have learned that great things happen when you bring organizations together under one roof. Our hub, the Shelldale Centre, has been recognized locally as an innovative space that brings social service agencies together allowing them to deliver integrated programs. Today, the Shelldale Centre is home to organizations delivering programs and services that support and empower their community. 

For information or to make a booking request for the Shelldale Centre please email  

**Please note that the Shelldale Centre is at capacity for the remainder of 2022 and is not accepting booking requests for space until 2023. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. 



New Development Opportunities

We have grown since starting Shelldale. We have bought and sold properties and currently own a residential home in Guelph used by Family & Children’s Services of Guelph and Wellington County for youth in need. We are governed by a strong and visionary community board and thanks to our commitment to managing our resources well, have a total asset base of over $2.5 million. This financial stability combined with our passion for strong partnerships is allowing us to explore other opportunities to support community development.

Community Hubs 


Community.  It’s where people live, work and play.  It creates connections and life experiences that help shape who we are. It’s important to everyone.  Kindle's vision of a community hub is to embrace the strength of the community; the people who live there, and a variety of groups and organizations, to create a welcoming space that enhances the lives of all individuals living in that community.
