The Hub

The Youth Hub is a safe, accepting, casual space where youth ages 12-29 can hang out, connect with each other and staff and access a range of resources from food, showers, clothing, mental health supports and important skills for life while also participating in fun and engaging programming.

The Hub’s System Navigators and members of the team connect regularly with participants to help with current service providers or to help access new resources such as, Employment Income Assistance (EIA) and housing supports. These daily living supports benefit community members often currently or previously involved with the child welfare system and Community Living disability Services (CLdS). 

The Hub is leading the implementation of Harm Reduction practices across the organization and has become known city-wide through the elimination of artificial barriers and welcoming participants from across the city.

The services offered will continue to be lifesaving by providing hope, acceptance and belonging for community members that attend The Hub. 
Each month The Hub’s team comes together to offer an amazing calendar of events and activities ranging from resume and ID workshops, art installations, games days, movie marathons, Frybread Fridays, community clean-ups, family dinners, holiday decorating, Mindful Mondays, sharing circles, outings, self-care, karaoke and so much more.

Hours of Operation:
Monday to Friday: 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
