Our Kids Network Acton Community Hub
The Acton Hub is more than a space. It is a network of schools, local and regional support agencies, along with dedicated staff and volunteers, who have been working together since 2008 to connect families, children and youth in the community to the services they need.

Hub Programs Calendar
The Hub serves children and youth from prenatal to 18 years and their families. With a population of 10,000 and growing, the Acton community is coping with numerous challenges including limited public transportation, social isolation and poverty. Meeting those challenges has meant identifying opportunities for delivering some services to families in their own neighbourhoods. For example, the Hub works with members of the faith community on the Food for Life program where families pick up healthy, safe and nutritious food and can attend monthly community dinners.
“The Acton Hub has definitely made a positive impact on the community. Residents of Acton have a greater ability to find professional assistance to meet their parenting needs and to bolster the healthy development of children.” Hub services participant
The schools in the area work with the Hub to develop and run after-school programs, workshops, seminars and summer camps. With their ideas and enthusiasm, community partners are helping the Acton Hub make a positive difference in the lives of youth and families in the community.
