Founded in 1977, UHC- Hub of Opportunities is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to meeting the needs of vulnerable people living in Windsor and Essex County. We improve the quality of lives by providing much needed programs and services that move people to independence and allow them to achieve their desired outcomes. Through offering 26 unique programs and services, we aim to focus on four pillars of support & guidance for the Windsor-Essex community – basic human needs, employment services, training and education, and newcomer settlement services. We are a ‘hub’ based in the community, for the community.
UHC is governed by a Board of Directors, who with the CEO, jointly ensure the mission of the organization is fulfilled both operationally and in daily practices. UHC receives funding through federal and provincial government grants, in addition to receiving municipal and United Way funding, as well as initiating its own fundraising efforts.
We currently operate two locations, our east Windsor Centre and our office in Belle River, which are both served by our professional, interdisciplinary team and dedicated volunteers supporting not just our clients and program outcomes but also our organizational mission, vision and values.
