The Salvation Army Lawson Ministries Hamilton is a network of people that strives to provide support and social inclusion to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.

We accomplish this by establishing and maintaining residential and day program services in supportive, caring environments that address individual needs.

Coping During COVID

We continue to provide essential services to our clients.  Some programs are on hold or are modified during the pandemic.

in the time of COVID

Our Self-CARE project was our way of creating some sunshine in the difficult first year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The individuals we support were provided with a personalized package of self-care items tailored to their needs and interests, including art and journal supplies. We’re proud to be sharing our clients’ drawings and thoughts through a poster display on the windows of our Paparella Innovative Arts building in Central Hamilton.


We’re in Hamilton

Some of the Services we are proud to offer to adults with developmental disabilities are STRIVE at Home, CAT – Community access to transportation, and residential supports.
