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.

On My Way!

Our new On My Way project pairs the developmentally disabled individuals we support with Hamilton artists who help them create a shareable expression of their needs and goals. For Kaitlin, that means collaborating with artist and author Gary Barwin to create a written and graphic narrative that will be printed  for her caregivers and loved ones to have and refer to. Using art as a means of communication helps Kaitlin on her way to a more fulfilling life! Stay tuned for more On My Way collaborations and stories throughout 2022!.

 

We are 40!

The salvation Army Lawson Ministries in Hamilton is turning 40 this year!  In June, we held a small gathering to acknowledge this milestone and here is a pic of many of the members of the Lawson family!   We are so proud of the work all of our staff have done over the years to provide support to individuals in the Hamilton community with disabilities.  Stay tuned for more pictures from the event and dont forget to follow us on instagram for all the latest Lawson news!

SELF-CARE

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.
