FC Community Hub Project

The Community Hub is an innovative incubator project for small and start-up not-for-profit groups and organizations, operating out of a space on the main level of The Family Centre.

In addition to being an office space, the Hub acts as a small ‘incubator’, where organizations are helped and encouraged to build their own sustainability. Participant organizations are supported to grow their capacity to serve the community through mentorship (provided by Capacity Canada), learning opportunities, sharing resources, and collaborative partnerships.
