Connecting People and Building Resilient
It's a Two Way Street

Since 1966, the poverty of loneliness and exclusion has been overcome with friendship and compassion at Welcome Inn Community Centre, where people from all walks of life work together to alleviate poverty in the North End and across Hamilton.  Each person at Welcome Inn is accepted and welcomed as we are.  We respect one another in our diversity and believe we all have something of value to give and to receive. Together, we build healthy and resilient community.  We offer opportunities for spiritual growth with respect for each person’s spiritual journey and different faith traditions.
