With beginnings tracing back to 1997, Kitchener Downtown Community Health Centre evolved from an idea in the minds of a group of Kitchener’s downtown residents into a thriving hub providing primary health care, health promotion and community capacity development.
KDCHC believes that health is a resource for life. The centre promotes awareness and advocates for changes in their community to encourage a broader focus for health and reduce health care access barriers. The
Centre relies on a combination of creative thinking and intentional partnerships to ensure responsiveness to the downtown community.
KDCHC moved to a new location in Kitchener’s downtown core, close to its clients and partners. Goals for the future include increasing primary care service capacity, partnering for a broader range of services, and increasing responsiveness to client needs
