Imagine a place…
If you were asked to imagine a place where people are heathier and happier…….a place where you feel like you belong…..a place where you can make a difference, what would you describe?
Almost 40 years ago, a group of caring residents saw a need and imagined a community development project that would change their neighbourhood for the better; an organization that would bring multiple programs and services under one roof and continue to transform based on the changing needs of the community. This place is Langs.
In its first year of operation at the new location, over 8000 individuals were served. That participation rate has increased by more than 78% to over 15,000 individuals being served today. In a recent HUB survey, 82% of respondents indicated they felt more connected to the community and 72% accessed a service for the first time.
Currently, 20 community partners call the HUB@1145 home. Fourteen more have expressed interest in joining the team.
An opportunity to expand the HUB@1145 now exists. This expansion will allow Langs and their community partners to do even more for the Cambridge community.
The expansion will provide:
- Additional community space, offices and group rooms for new programs
- Space for 5-7 more partners to provide more services to the community
- Additional parking
- Langs will be able to provide service to an additional 3,000 people annually and reduce wait times for all particpants
