Clothing Market

The Hope House clothing market offers a wide selection of new and gently-used clothing for everyone in all sizes and styles.

Like our food market, the clothing market looks and feels a lot like a shop, with familiar brands and the freedom to browse at your leisure. Our points-based system lets community members choose clothing that suits them and increases self-esteem, confidence and overall well-being.

Hope In Motion

Hope House is one of many organizations that offers a helping hand to members of our community here in Guelph. We believe that partnering and working with others is the best way to serve people at all corners of our community.

Hope in Motion distributes food, clothing, hygiene products and other essential supplies to other service providers in and around Guelph. Hope House receives generous quantities of donated goods each day, and this service ensures that any overflow finds its way to access points throughout the city.

Income Tax Program

Hope House offers a free Income Tax Program through the Community Volunteer Income Tax Program (CVITP) under the Canada Revenue Agency.

Please note that the online submission form will become available again on Wednesday, February 1st.

Please note: We will resume accepting new drop-off applications Jan 30th although our volunteers will not begin completing the returns until late February when the new tax software is available.

Walk-in tax clinics at Hope House will be Tuesday mornings 9:30am-noon beginning February 21st and Wednesday afternoons 1:00pm-3:30pm beginning February 22. Please ensure you have your social insurance number and bring photo ID if you are able. 

Hope House Income Tax Program runs from September to the end of November, and February to the end of May. Within 5 business days of submitting your form, you will receive an acknowledgment and an estimated time-frame for when your form will be processed. Please note that this timeframe can vary from 1-4 weeks depending on the time of year and volume of requests.

Our free Income Tax Program is run by Sue Morris, a registered tax clinic volunteer, who, with several other volunteers, supports our community members in getting their taxes done, whether it’s just for the past year or if you need to catch up on several years.

Over 1000 tax returns were completed in 2021.
