Sherbourne is committed to providing quality healthcare services to people living in our mid-East Toronto neighbourhood. While all members of our community are welcome, we focus on providing care to those community members who are homeless or under-housed (living in precarious housing situations like couch surfing, crashing with friends).Family Health Team
A Family Health Team is an approach to primary health care that brings together different health care providers to coordinate your care. Our Family Health Teams consist of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians, and other health care professionals who work collaboratively, each using their experience and skills to provide care.
The Family Health Teams provide a wide range of health programs and service, including for people who don’t have a doctor. You can get a wide range of health services from a Family Health Team, including advice and guidance on living healthier to avoid illness, or manage a chronic disease.Health Bus
We understand that accessing health care can be a difficult experience, especially for people who are homeless or living in shelters. That’s why we offer programs and a mobile Health Bus service that deliver realistic healthcare solutions for those who lack permanent housing.
The Rotary Club of Toronto Health Buses – operated by Sherbourne Health Centre – deliver mobile on-the-spot nursing care to homeless and under-housed people in the southeast Toronto neighbourhood, as well as other parts of the city.
Operating on a fixed weekly schedule, the Health Buses make regular stops during days and evenings at a number of community locations. Click here to learn more about the Health Bus program.Hep C Program
We aim to improve people’s quality of life by: reducing the barriers and stigma for people living with Hepatitis C, providing equitable access to comprehensive care and services, strengthening the capacity of people with lived experience of HCV to self-advocate, creating a sustainable program, and building a healthy community through prevention, education and support.
The program comprises a team of health professionals dedicated to providing client-centred care for people with Hep C, including Primary Care Doctors, Nurses, Counsellors, Outreach Workers and Educators.
Access to people with personal experience of living with Hep C and people who have gone through Hep C treatment. Click here to learn more about Hep C prevention, management, and our services available to people living with Hep C.WINK – Women In Need ‘Klinik’ (drop-in)
WINK provides a welcoming environment for homeless, low-income and street-involved women (including trans-women) every Wednesday morning 9:00 am-11:30 am on Sherbourne’s ground floor. WINK offers a free breakfast and one-stop access to community outreach staff, nurses, doctors and counsellors in a safe, non-judgmental space.
