We are excited to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website! 

 Hamilton & District Extend-A-Family, a non-profit community service, provides social recreation opportunities and friendships to children with special needs while providing respite to their families. 

Hamilton & District Extend-A-Family is a not-for-profit community service that responds to the challenges faced by children, teens, and their families with special needs. We offer programs that provide respite, opportunities for fun and friendship with peers, as well as volunteers in the community.
