Take Action

Here is the good news: Our hands are not tied.

There are many ways to help. We can all do our little part to help end poverty and homelessness in Niagara.


Make a donation to the YWCA Niagara Region or one of the other fantastic local agencies supporting people who struggle with poverty and homelessness.

Be a voice for change

Be a voice for change. You can be a spokesperson for all of those faces that are forgotten or ignored in our region. Support Living Wage employers, advocate for better access to mental health supports, speak up for better funding for a hopelessly underfunded sector, and support initiatives that bring more affordable housing to Niagara.

Look UP!

Look UP! You never know what the person next to you is going through. Whether they are in front of you in line at the grocery store, losing their patience with their child in the parking lot or even calling you a name as you walk down the street. You don’t know the journey they are on, so be kind. It seems like a simple request, but it isn’t always easy. Try to be kind wherever you go because that person is someone’s daughter, friend, father… they are someone.
