Mission Services is not only committed to helping families and individuals directly, but also to advocating for system change in Hamilton and Ontario.

We participate in many awareness campaigns which seek to end stigma, educate the public, and lobby for policy changes. We participate in campaigns including Wrapped In Courage and Recovery Awareness Month. 

Many of our staff members sit on boards and committees with representatives from different levels of government, our community partners, and other public services. We are dedicated to changing the systems which directly affect the lives of our community members.
