People at Welcome Inn

Margaret Smith Margaret Smith,
Seniors Diners Club

"Comfort, compassion and friendship through hard times and good times” is what brings Margaret Smith here each week.  Margaret has been participating in programs at Welcome Inn for over ten years: seniors lunches, Soul Food potlucks, community events and social gatherings. Welcome Inn has changed Margaret’s life in the sense of her getting the opportunity to meet new people - recently Margaret lost her brother Billy, and the friends that she has made here helped her though that difficult period with kind words and support.  Margaret describes the Senior’s Diners Club to others as “Home away from home, you’ll look forward to Tuesdays and the meeting of old and new friends!”




Welcome Inn Community Centre of Hamilton is a special place in the heart of Hamilton's North End. Here people are welcomed, celebrated and empowered to give as well as receive. Since 1966, the poverty of loneliness and exclusion has been overcome with friendship and compassion. At Welcome Inn, we practice community as a two-way street; join in learning and contributing to build inclusive and resilient community!
