The United Way of Burlington and Greater Hamilton requested that the SPRC prepare a report on Hamilton seniors to give the United Way and the community a picture of how Hamilton’s seniors are faring. The collaboration on this report included the Hamilton Council on Aging, who helped guide and improve this report.Funded by: United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton
This report focuses primarily on groups or social issues for which data is already collected and relatively accessible. There are many groups of Hamilton residents for which there is a scarcity of data, but yet still require attention by the community to improve conditions for all. These would include many significant segments of our society including: the lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender and queer community, precarious workers, temporary foreign workers and grandparents raising their grandchildren, among others.Funded by: United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton
This report was commissioned by Mission Services of Hamilton and attempts to give at least a partial picture of the challenges and conditions faced by homeless women in Hamilton with the aim of aiding Mission Services to better understand this population and plan for potential additional services.Commissioned by: Mission Services of Hamilton Funded by: United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton, Ontario Trillium Foundation
