Growing Up Healthy Downtown is a partnership of eight multi-service community agencies who deliver a variety of programs and services that focus on improving the health and well-being of young children as well as offering support and new skills to their parents or caregivers.  If you’re looking for a place to drop in with your kids for a couple of hours, to make some new connections, or get involved in community events and learn new things, Growing Up Healthy Downtown has something for you.

There are various GUHD programs available at:

  • The 519 Church Street Community Centre
  • Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood Centre
  • Dixon Hall
  • Family Service Toronto
  • Harbourfront Community Centre
  • St. Christopher House
  • WoodGreen Community Services

University Settlement is hosting its own GUHD events this summer, including:
