About Start Me Up Niagara

Start Me Up Niagara offers services and programs to individuals who face significant life challenges to provide them with opportunities to stabilize, participate and grow.

At Start Me Up Niagara, we offer services to support people facing significant challenges such as poverty, homelessness, unemployment, disabilities, addictions and mental health issues.

  • Our goal is to provide opportunities for these individuals to help them increase their level of self-sufficiency and improve their quality of life.

Our services range from community lunches, health care, and arts and gardening programs, to housing supports and employment development. Together, we are working to build a community where all are included.
