Hillside is a charity with a governing Board of Directors that assesses the overall strategy and direction of the organization.  Our staff, 21 committees, 94 coordinators and 1300 volunteers handle all aspects of operations. The board meets once a month and at other times of the year depending on need.  Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings, which start at 6:30pm at the Hillside house at 341 Woolwich Street in Guelph.  Board Meeting dates for the 2017-18 year are as follows:
