Community Hubs

Building strong, supportive, and inclusive communities. Because where we live matters.

Six Community Hubs serving more than 200,000 Calgarians are being planned for over the next five years (2017-2021) in the communities of Bowness, Greater Forest Lawn, North of McKnight, Sunalta, Village Square, and Vista Heights.

The Community Hubs initiative is a partnership between the United Way Calgary and Area, The City of Calgary and the Rotary Club of Calgary, in support of the Enough For All strategy.

Community Hub

Acting as ‘community living rooms’, Community Hubs are easily accessible gathering places for residents to connect, socialize, plan, and host community activities. They will house resources and services identified as needed by the community, and will serve as a platform to ignite conversations on topics with local impact, all with the goal of helping individuals and communities thrive.

Community Hubs resources and services may include education, employment, financial literacy, resident involvement and leadership; kids recreation programs, childcare, and youth initiatives; counselling, food hamper distribution, connecting isolated seniors, and assisting new immigrant families.

The true power of Community Hubs lies in their uniqueness to reflect local needs and desires. Empowering residents to shape and build the kind of community they want to live in and raise their families in. Because people care about their community. And where we live matters.
