De Mazenod Door Outreach is a Canadian registered charity, and is solely supported through the generosity of donors who want to make a difference in the lives of the poor and marginalized in Hamilton. We do not receive government operational funding.

Your financial support makes an immediate and positive difference for the guests we serve and support every day.

Your donation helps feed our neighbours in Hamilton’s inner city who are hungry and often homeless, living in poverty and struggling to make ends meet.

We provide breakfast and lunch, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
