About Project SHARE

Located on Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls, Project SHARE has been serving Niagara Falls residents for 30 years by offering emergency support services to those who are living on or below the poverty line. Project SHARE currently offers 17 programs and services that help us meet our mission of improving the lives of Niagara Falls individuals and families in need and further realize our vision of ending the struggle against poverty and empowering those in need.


Project SHARE provides support and assistance in 5 key areas including food security, homelessness prevention, training and education, healthy living and seasonal support at Christmas and back to school. In 2021, Project SHARE helped 3,675 households, and distributed almost a million pounds of food to our neighbours in need.


Project SHARE is currently seeing record breaking increases in the access for our services, and we need the help of our community members to ensure our neighbours in need are feed, healthy, and safe.
