The HUB has been inspired by the Blue Communities initiative by the Council of Canadians. The HUB has now partnered with the Huntsville BIA to bring water bottle refill stations to our community to help provide free, clean water to people and reduce the waste that one-use plastic water bottles brings to our town. We’re always looking for ways to contribute on a community level – let us know if you have other ideas!
Starting with a passion to see a direct, effective approach to assist with poverty in our community, The HUB is 1 of a handful of Community Partners of the Circles Muskoka program. Circles Muskoka is a YWCA initiative designed to be a sustainable and transformative approach to poverty reduction that ensures everyone has enough reasons, resources, and relationships in their lives to thrive. Currently the program is funded by The United Way. For more info on the program, watch VIDEO HERE.
