WHO WE ARE

Port Cares (Port Colborne Community Association for Resource Extension) is a community organization that provides leadership, support, and resources to enhance the quality of life for individuals in Port Colborne and the surrounding Region.

Did you know that the average wait for affordable housing in Port Colborne is 11+ years? On Feb 3, please buy socks or a toque to help someone waiting!

sock puppetsAt Port Cares we urge you to join us in the fight to combat homelessness in our community. Did you know that:

  • Families with kids are the fastest-growing group in the homeless population? 
  • 1/3 of homeless individuals have some form of mental health issue?  
  • The average life expectancy of a homeless person in Canada is 39? 
  •  20% of Canada’s homeless are young people ages 16-24?

Shocking isn’t it? Help us at Port Cares by  donating at our Raising the Roof Pancake Brunch  on February 3rd at 61 Nickel Street from 11:30 am to 1 pm. Please buy some socks or a toque to donate to the Raising the Roof campaign to end homelessness. To learn more follow these links:
