Who You Help

Port Cares is a home-grown registered charity dedicated to improving the lives of South Niagara children and families living in poverty. For more than 30 years, Port Cares has supported our most vulnerable by providing essentials of daily living – food, housing, crisis intervention as well as education and training. Port Cares has relied on the proceeds of fundraising events to sustain these much-needed services. However, in the face of the current pandemic, we must now find alternate ways to fund our work so that we can continue to make a difference for families struggling to overcome hardship.
