Brantford Expansion: Coming Soon to Harmony Square

By: Flora Ennis, Director, Services / System Planning (Brant)

 

Woodview is expanding to a new location in Brantford’s Downtown Core!

 

We are very excited to be at the heart of the city, and hope you will come for a visit!

 

Over the past few years, Woodview in Brantford, as part of our work as the Lead Agency, has been engaging with youth, families, and community partners in new ways to discover the needs of our community and co-create systems and services to meet people where they are at with the right service, at the right time, in the right place.

 

This work together led to the leasing of a storefront space in Harmony Square and the co-development of a “youth wellness hub” pilot project to meet the needs of our community. Our youth wellness hub will bring multiple services and partnerships under one roof to make it easier for children, youth, and families to access mental health and a variety of other services. These services will be youth and family friendly, with co-designed spaces offering an inviting atmosphere, and a feeling of coming home. We are very excited to announce that the Brant County Health Unit will be our first community partner at Harmony Square. There are so many wonderful opportunities, and hope we will have more partners join us soon!

 

This new space will also allow many of Woodview’s current services from 643 Park Road North to be available at the Harmony Square location. Services will include drop in times, planned groups, access to computers for youth and families, and engagement in Harmony Square activities. This location will have a unique set of hours from our main Brantford office and will serve youth ages 12+ and their families.

 

We already have our sights set on growing and know the benefits a fully functioning hub could offer Brantford, Brant, and Six Nations. We have plans to further develop the hub and grow with the support of our community.
