About this Program
The Hub, mid-Scarborough, is the first of a new integrated service delivery hubs model. This beautiful facility is a Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities (SCHC) project funded by The United Way of Toronto and York Region (UWTYR).
Currently, the Hub is running a Scarborough Vaccine Clinic. You can book an appointment by calling or texting us at 416-580-6741. Visit our COVID-19 Resources page for more info.
SCHC and other reputable community organizations provide various social services that target specific local needs. Programs and services within the Hub include a Community Health Centre, Diabetes Education program and care, neighbourhood development initiatives, employment and community services with mentoring for children and youth.
Since it opened its door in 2010, the Hub mid-Scarborough has been the nucleus of activities, helping to strengthen the culturally rich neighbourhood of Eglinton East/Kennedy Park & Ionview.
