Extreme Heat and Poverty

As you likely already know, a heat warning has once again been issued for the Hamilton area. Our community’s major concern at this time is how to deal with the heat, currently at 31, “feels like 36”! While we are thankful to provide an air-conditioned space at Helping Hands, we also grieve that many of our friends facing poverty do not have safe, cool places to rest during the day or night.

On this page, we’ve provided some tips and education about how extreme heat affects people who are facing poverty. We hope you’ll take a moment to learn!
