AccessPoint on Danforth
AccessPoint on Danforth (APOD)is a multiservice Community Hub that was conceived as a result of the United Way Toronto’s neighbourhood development strategy. This facility serves as a community resource in one of the priority neighbourhoods of Toronto, particularly for the residents of the Taylor-Massey neighbourhood, which includes Crescent Town, Teesdale, Secord-Lumsden and Dawes Road. On October 19, 2010 the AccessPoint on Danforth officially opened its doors for public. The Hub operates on a shared services model in a 14500 sq. ft. facility which houses different agencies:
- Access Alliance
- Neighbourhood Group (Action for Neighbourhood Change)
- East York East Toronto Family Resources
The Hub has opened new doors of opportunities and possibilities for all of the agencies based at this facility. Being under one roof allows agencies to improve inter-agency referrals thus simplifying service experience for clients. The Hub also offers an incubation space for new ideas to flourish. It encourages local entrepreneurial residents to see the world as a more optimistic place with new opportunities and room for nurturing creative talents.
The APOD hub offers services in an inclusive environment where everyone is welcome without prejudice or stereotyping. The Hub offers a number of services and organizes programs, workshops, and events for local residents. For more information, see our Program Calendar.
