Durham Community Health Centre (DCHC) is a registered, charitable organization providing a wide range of free services and programs to community members across Durham Region. We are an interprofessional group of staff that include team members such as physicians, specialists, healthcare staff, mental health professionals, program and support staff. Our expert team provides a wide range of healthcare, mental health, and social services that are inclusive, equitable and accessible to all.
DCHC’s comprehensive services address the complex picture of human health. This means we consider the social, emotional, economic, health and developmental circumstances an individual is experiencing when accessing services. We partner with clients to improve their own health and wellness.
We strive to be accessible to community members who face barriers such as culture, gender, age, geographic isolation, homelessness, language, physical and/or cognitive disabilities, poverty, sexual identity and race.
Most of our programs are offered free of charge and open to anyone seeking support. Our healthcare services include day-to-day healthcare and physician visits, chronic disease management, and mental health. We also offer a range of community programs that promote community members’ control over their own health. These program offerings include supports for healthy decision making, parenting support, child development, and youth empowerment.
DCHC is committed to reconciliation and partnership with Indigenous communities. We offer a wide range of Indigenous-led programming that provides a variety of culturally relevant activities and events to serve Turtle Island’s diverse urban Indigenous community.
As a trusted community partner, we collaborate with numerous organizations to provide the best possible care for our clients.
With your help, we are building healthier communities together.
