About Project SHARE

Located on Stanley Avenue in Niagara Falls, Project SHARE has been serving Niagara Falls residents for over 30 years by offering emergency support services to those who are living on or below the poverty line. Project SHARE currently offers 15 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.


As the housing crisis and rising cost of living continues, many Niagara Falls residents are living below the poverty line. An average of 100 families come into Project SHARE each day for emergency food and support services. During the 2022-2023 fiscal year, we saw a staggering 11,670 people come through our doors. Compared to the previous fiscal year where 6,844 people came to Project SHARE for support, it is clear there is an alarmingly high need for better social assistance in our community.


Currently 1 in every 8 residents of Niagara Falls relies on Project SHARE to feed their families, and more new families are accessing their emergency support services daily. Over the past two years Project SHARE has seen a 97% increase in the number of families served, and in September of 2023 we opened a satellite food bank in Chippawa Presbyterian Church to help meet this need. We rely on fundraising events like the Coldest Night of the Year to help us keep our neighbours fed, housed and healthy.



Bundle up & walk with us on February 24, 2024 - Our Community At Work!
