20 years of helping. 20 years of community. 20 years of creating a space for belonging and love and support. 20 years of sharing resources. 20 years of amazing friends, volunteers, staff and donors.

20 years of coffee being poured and friendships being built in the GALA neighbourhood.

This summer, we had a birthday party and enjoyed a diverse turn out of friends, volunteers, past volunteers and staff, board members, community partners, leaders and neighbours.  Everyone was welcome to connect, to learn more about us and see how our drop-in programs run.

We were honoured to have MP Matthew Green attend our event to provide us with an award of recognition for 20 years of service in the community of Hamilton Centre. It was a wonderful opportunity to share with him about the growth we have experienced in the past few years, and our hopes and dreams for the future.

The festive atmosphere provided opportunity for people just walking by to check us out as well. Did you miss out on this opportunity to check your friendly neighbour Helping Hands? Feel free to stop by any day that we’re open, and we’ll show you around!

As a community, we have filled this place with love and respect for 20 years. We look forward to you continuing to walk with us into the next 20 years! Please do continue to give financially at our website (www.hhsmhamilton.com), or follow us on FB, Instagram or X (Twitter) to find out  what the current greatest needs are at our free store and drop off needed used or new items.

Join us at our Gala on Thursday October 12 (5:30-9:30pm at Liuna Station) to continue celebrating our 20th birthday with us! Purchase your tickets on our website today at www.hhsmhamilton.com.
