Who We Are

About

The Waterloo Wayside Centre is a group of people focused on creating and supporting community where it would otherwise not exist.  Born out of our deep desire to help one another, the Waterloo Wayside Centre serves the youth, the senior population, and the marginalized in the Kitchener-Waterloo area.  Hosted at Emmanuel United Church, located in the heart of Uptown Waterloo, the centre offers a variety of programs to help the bodies, hearts and minds of those that need it the most.

Through partnerships with other community-based organizations and a dedicated team of volunteers, the Waterloo Wayside Centre is able to host and foster grass-roots programs that address real needs within the community.  As a testimony to the impact of the centre and the restorative nature of its programs, many of our volunteers joined our ranks after starting off as clients.
