Place and purpose for all

Our neighbours are our customers. We serve people from ages birth to senior, of all cultures, ethnicities and economic backgrounds who come to us with a defined need.

Kinbridge then works with these individuals to meet that need, taking great pride along the way to foster relationships with the people next door, our police officers, other community agencies, our schools, our fire departments — people who work every day to make our community a great place to be.

Peer Programs – Community Health and Nutrition

Kinbridge Community Association in partnership with the Region of Waterloo, Public Health, offers several programs in our community that are planned and facilitated by peer mentors.  The Peer Program is a Region of Waterloo Public Health initiative that aims to build community and individual capacity using peer programs. The Peer Health Worker (PHW) program focuses on child and family health, as well as healthy eating and nutrition. Our Peer Health Workers are recruited from our communities and complete intensive training through the Region of Waterloo Public Health and Emergency Services, then they work with our neighbourhoods to plan and lead programs for our community.  Topics may include nutrition, cooking, parenting, personal safety, among other health-related topics. These programs are offered free of charge, and generally run once a week.  Please check with your centre to find out what programs are currently running.
