St. Matthew’s House (SMH) is a charitable, nonprofit and multi-service agency. It is an outreach of the Anglican Diocese of Niagara and its beginnings date back half of a century. The “Bayfront Clergy” opened a storefront ministry in 1964 to serve Hamilton’s residents in the shadow of industry in the north end of Hamilton. Together with our community partners, we work toward alleviating the poverty experience, eliminating poverty and adopting best practices for improved quality of life.
St. Matthew’s House serves people living in and around some of the most impoverished areas in Hamilton. Our services include emergency food, crisis intervention and outreach to seniors and vulnerable persons to support independent living. Clients include persons with limited or no income, persons living in poor health or with chronic conditions, persons of all ages and newcomers. SMH provides an on-site day care (largely subsidized spaces) and special needs resource teachers who support children with developmental disabilities in day care sites in Hamilton.
St. Matthew’s House were looking for a new brand for their organization. They were using outdated logos and inconsistent branding. Through the FootPRINT Fund we were able to help them come up with a brand new logo and tagline and provide them with valuable marketing ideas and solutions to the obstacles they faced. We have since continued to work with St. Matthew’s House to implement our marketing plan.

The Dundas Valley School of Art (DVSA) is an independent, not-for-profit art school serving the Hamilton area continuously since 1964. We are leaders in the cultural development of the region and, with an annual enrollment of over 4,200 students aged two to 102, we play a vital role in the art education of the community. At DVSA, you can take a course in art history, ceramics, drawing, jewellery-making, painting, printmaking, design, photography and sculpture, taught by more than 50 highly-regarded faculty members.
