Somerset West Community Health Centre (SWCHC) is one of 74 Community Health Centres in Ontario. CHCs are the only primary health care model in Ontario that, under one roof, combines primary health care services with a wide range of other health promotion and community development services. They are also the only primary health care in Ontario that focuses on the social determinants of health.
As a non-profit, community-governed organization, SWCHC provides primary health care, health promotion and community development services using inter-professional teams of health and social service providers. These teams include physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, dieticians, health promoters, early childhood educators, counsellors and others. We are sponsored and managed by an incorporated non-profit community board made up of members of our community.
SWCHC is well known for its excellent Community Health Centre (CHC) model and its professional health services team, but it has also become a leader in offering a wide range of community-building activities and advocacy programs.
All of these facts are why we could not be happier to announce that SWCHC will be our #CraftChange Partner for part of 2017. During the months of July, August, and September, Maker House Co. will donate 2% of all sales will be donated to SWCHC in order to help them continue to assist those in need.
