Make a Donation

Community Living Hamilton is supported with federal, provincial, City of Hamilton and United Way Halton & Hamilton donations. But our resources are never enough for the needs of our community.

Your donation can help us improve service capacity, availability and choice, while also enabling us to bring new services on stream. Your contribution may help someone with an developmental disability find work, learn a skill, participate in their community, make a friend… it may also help a family access a fun weekend for their child with special needs, or go on a social outing with peers.

We welcome your donations here.


Each and every day, volunteers make a difference at Community Living Hamilton. By giving valuable assistance to our staff, volunteers help our clients participate in and contribute to the community.

In exchange for your sincere commitment and a positive attitude, we offer you a richly rewarding volunteer experience, where you can:

  • Contribute to your community
  • Enhance the lives of our clients
  • Gain valuable work experience

There are many ways to be involved… you are sure to find a volunteer opportunity that meets your interests, needs and schedule.
