Wesley Urban Ministries offers daily support, every step of the way, to over 1250 children, youth, adults and seniors living in poverty in Hamilton. As a multi-service organization, Wesley has a portfolio of over 30 different programs in 19 locations in the areas of Children, Youth & Family Services, Housing & Homeless Services and Neighbourhood & Newcomer Services.

The long-term impact of our programs includes improved education, successful employment and supportive independence.  As an organization, we are innovative, creative, evidence-based and financially responsible.  Wesley has been responding to poverty in the Hamilton community since 1955, when a senior’s outreach program began in the basement of Wesley United Church in downtown Hamilton.  Wesley’s services are possible through a broad base of funding support from government, business, foundations, individuals and churches.
