Building Capacity, Sharing Values: Shared Spaces and Social Purpose Real Estate

November 20, 2017 • 2 min read

Tides Canada and its sector colleagues are interested in developing the capacity of Canadian organizations to create and sustain community hubs, nonprofit centres and other shared space platforms. Organizationally, shared spaces reduce costs, improve collaboration, and enhance impact by ensuring that nonprofits and other social agencies have access to quality spaces for work, the arts, and education. At neighborhood and community levels, nonprofit centres and hubs are important assets, essential to creating inclusive and vibrant communities. A strategy to develop this capacity will build on Tides Canada’s leadership in shared administrative platforms to identify and support how shared physical spaces can be used to tackle organizational and community challenges.

This detailed summary has excellent descriptions of various models/typology of community hubs. The appendix includes resources such as shared space and feasibility studies, as well as links to financial resources.
