Soupfest is the major annual fundraiser for Living Rock Ministries, a non-profit youth resource center in Hamilton. Living Rock Ministries has been a safe place of community and support for youth-at-risk for more than 32 years. Last year, Living Rock responded to over 32,000 visits, providing essential supports to one of Hamilton’s most vulnerable populations: youth between the ages of 13-25, who are affected by significant risk factors such as loss of family, poverty, substance misuse and mental health. These youth need support to navigate the social systems to find ways to meet their basic needs of food, education and shelter. The programs and services offered by Living Rock Ministries provide a continuum of care for youth and their children, while offering opportunities for personal development, life-skills and employment training.
