Who we are:
We are a nonprofit, multi-service Community Health Centre that is playing an active role in the community since 1969. Our programs and services provide an ingrained presence in communities throughout the city so people can access the support that they need. We offer a full range of community services delivered by a diverse team of professionals. Our team includes doctors, nurses, social workers, counsellors, dietitians, community developers, health promoters, and outreach workers.
What we do:
We provide a full range of quality health and social services to families and individuals who live or work in the communities we serve. Care is delivered in more ways than one: one-on-one services, personal-development groups, and community level involvement. While most services are offered in both English and French, cultural interpretation is available and some groups are offered in other languages. Through active community engagement, we strive to respond to local needs and deliver tailored services. We contribute to the collective effort of improving individual and community health by addressing underlying conditions.
Who we serve:
Our programs and services are available to families and individuals currently living or working in our jurisdiction: Centretown, the Glebe, and Old Ottawa South. Each year, we serve more than 13,000 residents. We pay particular attention to vulnerable groups including the senior population, the GLBT community, those affected by mental illness and addictions, the homeless, and newcomers to Canada.
