LIVING WELL TOGETHER
BECAUSE OF THE ABUNDANCE OF SNOW, WELCOME INN COMMUNITY CENTRE IS CLOSED AGAIN TODAY, TUESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2022. THE FOOD BANK WILL REOPEN ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, AND ALL DELIVERIES FOR SENIORS WILL BE CONDUCTED ON THAT DAY.
DARE TO DOUBLE IT is Welcome Inn’s pandemic recovery fundraiser. As we all know, COVID-19 has caused a great deal of changes across the globe. In the north end of Hamilton, the entire community is driving our food bank, caring for the neighbourhood kids and supporting recent immigrants.
Every donation–even $10–is a major donation.
Though we have had to modify some of our programming, we are offering many COVID-related supports right now. Our food bank is still open and more active than ever. Community members can, once again, enter the building and participate in the creation of their food hampers. For those who are hesitant to be inside, grab-and-go boxes are available at the side door, or appointments can be made in advance. The food bank is open on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday from 10:30am-2:00pm.
Our Seniors Programs are very much operational, and the Diner’s Club is a happening place every Tuesday! COVID protocols are in effect, and all seniors must be vaccinated. Food hampers and essential items are still available for delivery, and the visitation program is more active than ever before!
Our Learning and Fun afterschool program is up and running with a limited number of children enjoying academic support and playing group games!
Our Community Support Programs, including supports for recent immigrants to Canada, are all fully operational. At this time, it’s only the thrift store and community cafe that remain closed.
The North End
Even though the North End of Hamilton is changing and gentrification is a reality, our community still faces high rates of poverty, soaring housing costs and health-related concerns.
For us, it’s not about creating another program; it’s about empowering members of the community so that all might be well. Welcome Inn promotes wellness in eight key areas.
A vibrant community is rooted in participation, and everyone is welcome to contribute. Share your time and talents with others through volunteering in a program.
