Everyone who walks through the doors of the CCAS of Hamilton is an inspiration. Our staff are skilled and committed to help people become the best they can be. Our volunteers are selfless and compassionate, giving of their time, energy, and love. Our service recipients are working to improve themselves and their families, often while dealing with personal trauma, challenging circumstances and social injustice.

From time to time, we ask some of these inspiring people to share their stories with us. Their stories are located throughout our website, and are also gathered here. We thank them all for being willing to share so much of themselves with us.

If you have a story to tell, please contact us.
