Our Mission

WHO WE ARE

We are here not for income, but for an outcome

Extended Hands is a non-profit organization based in Montreal focused on meeting the needs of low-income households while giving them the social skills needed to properly reintegrate in our society.

We treat our neighbors as we would have them treat us. Our organization is based on principles of accountability, integrity, honesty, and transparency.

In these hard economic times, the number of people who need help have risen drastically. With this demand, we have seen an increase in the number of people who register weekly at Extended Hands. Since becoming accredited with Moisson Montreal, we have been able to provide more assistance than ever before.

We have strict policies and budgetary reviews in place to ensure that all forms of assistance go to the people in need while maintaining very low administrative costs. As a registered non-profit organization, we are doing our best to work alongside other organizations to serve our community in Lachine and its surrounding areas.

Our Story

Extended Hands is a non-profit organization based in Montreal focused on meeting the needs of low-income households while giving them the social skills needed to properly reintegrate in our society.

Our Birth

In February 2005, Extended Hands began its outreach program at its previous location in NDG, Quebec. Because of limited space and time, it began servicing the community once per month, offering free hot meals, After functioning in this capacity for one year, Extended Hands moved its’ location to Lachine, QC and began servicing the community there.

With greater facilities, it was able to run its’ services twice per week again offering free hot meals and still making clothing and so forth readily available, all from sponsorship and donations. We began to grow in volunteers and in numbers of those in the community in need of assistance. However, we could not keep facilitating the people on the limited supply of food because of the rapid growth.

We decided to take another step in the progression. It became a registered non-profit charity in September 2008. It was now able to offer income tax receipts to all our generous supporters. As well, it became accredited with Moisson Montreal and is now a proud recipient of their food distribution in order to keep servicing the people of Lachine.

We are grateful for our accomplishments thus far but have our sights set on doing so much more. We believe with the help of individuals, sponsors, and corporations, we will achieve our goals.

WE HAVE A MISSION

In the city of Lachine and surrounding areas, there are many people who are in desperate need of help.

It is our desire to serve their needs by providing both a free community lunch as well as a grocery distribution once per week through our Community Care center.

We also offer clothing and household items, when available, which have been generously donated to us.

If you have items you would like to donate or would like to help volunteer please contact us on for more information.
