The Toronto Hubs report, by the WoodGreen Community Services Planning and Research Unit highlights the many benefits of Hubs. Hubs present service provider benefits through economies of scale from shared office duties, while funders benefit from co-location of service providers and residents through improved accessibility and variety of programs. Hubs bring services to underserved neighbourhoods and enhance policy goals, funder commitment, community development goals and local vision. Hubs drive services closer to those in need, provide supports for clients, addressing multiple, intersecting needs. Hubs are emerging as effective methods for local capacity building, enabling grassroots community groups and smaller agencies to enhance their ability to engage and support local community.
