HEALTH SERVICES

Centre 507 is a partner of the City of Ottawa’s SITE program to prevent the spread of disease and to minimize the risks associated with substance abuse. Centre 507 offers needle exchange and crack pipe kits, along with rehabilitation advice and referrals. Outreach workers from the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Royal Ottawa Hospital, SITE, Centretown Community Health Centre and Housing Help visit the drop-in regularly to connect with individuals in an environment in which they already feel safe. We also work with some of these agencies to provide on site flu shot clinics, foot care clinics, and testing for HIV, TB and hepatitis.
