OKN Aldershot Hub Closed for the Summer but most summer programs have been relocated.
Due to renovation construction at Holy Rosary School, the Our Kids Network Community Hub will be closed for the summer months, effective immediately.
The Hub Coordinator will be available on most Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Next Door Social Space, 650 Plains Rd E. (across the street from the ROCK Drop-in). When the sign is out - she is in! She will also continue to respond to phone and email messages throughout the summer. The Fresh Food Box will continue at the Next Door Social Space in July and August.
Many thanks to Next Door Social Space. They have been most generous and welcoming to Our Kids Network.
Unfortunately, there will be no groceries available from the Hub for the summer months because of the construction and re-location of Hub programs.
In September all will be back to normal! The grocery program will begin on September 8, in the newly renovated Hub at Holy Rosary School.
News & Events
Hub Programs Calendar
The Aldershot Hub is changing the way parents find solutions for helping their children and teens grow into responsible and caring adults.
Aldershot is a deep-rooted community with longstanding partnerships in place. At the Aldershot Hub, more than 25 community partners; agencies, faith groups, regional staff, and community members work together to provide and improve opportunities for children and their families.
Community partners work with the Hub coordinator to plan events, introduce new programs and give Aldershot families more access to community resources. For example, through the Halton Regional Police Service program, Toys for Tots, Aldershot children and youth receive gifts each Christmas. Each week, parents receive free groceries, due to a partnership with ReFresh Foods and a March Break income tax clinic for parents is provided by a local chartered accountant.
Dedicated volunteers keep the Hub running by helping with housekeeping, coordinating programs and even teaching piano.
“My first experience at the (Aldershot) Hub was collecting a Halton Fresh Food Box. I couldn’t have been more warmly welcomed. The coordinator and volunteers were all pleasant, caring, and nurturing people.” Fred, Food for Life program participant
