Ace & Joy Clarke


Ace and Joy founded The Hamilton Dream Center food bank in Hamilton, ON because they wanted to give back. After having lived the lifestyle of outlaw motorcycle gang members they knew that they needed to become people who offered HOPE to a broken community.

Their passion for picking people up and setting them on a life changing path is evident each and every day as they help feed and clothe countless families each year.

We're thrilled to be a Charity Partner for the Hamilton Road2Hope race this year!  Please visit our Road2Hope page for information on how to get involved and help raise much-needed funds for The Hamilton Dream Center.


Hamilton has the highest incidence of child poverty in Ontario. In our neighbourhood 2 out of 5 families live below the poverty line and 76% of all children aged 7-14 go to school every day hungry. It is our intention to change that! Our goal at The Hamilton Dream Center is to be a light in a darkened place. We believe that by meeting the immediate needs of the community we will be just that a place of hope.

Your new or gently used clothing and non-perishable food items are always welcome. Financial support is needed and will help us to continue the work that has begun as well as to start new programs. Have a look at what we do and what we are going to become.
