From Poverty To Possibility
Bartholomew Street Community Hub (Brockville Police Services)
Website: Bartholomew St. Community Hub
Welcome to the Bartholomew Street Community Hub. We try to help you get connected, problem solve, listen, share ideas and things - whatever YOU decide you want and need. Our only job is to help you get ahead in a way that is meaningful for you.
We have lots of community organizations that are willing to meet you here, run programs that you want, and assist you with your goals. Let us know who you need to see, talk to and we can help set it up.
We are open to using our space for whatever the community needs - is it a drop-in space, a social hour, a yoga time, a place where you can have a coffee and just relax, a place to use the computer, printer and internet.... you decide.
