About St. Matthew’s House

St. Matthew’s House (SMH) began in 1964 as a storefront ministry called The Compass to help residents of Hamilton’s north end. It formed as an outreach program of the Anglican Diocese of Niagara. It has now grown into a charitable, non-profit multi-service agency located on Barton Street between Victoria and Wentworth.
