To pursue innovative, collaborative solutions that bolster equitable access to all the essential elements of a thriving community – mixed-income housing, variety of healthy food sources, quality healthcare, and educational supports.
Launched in May 2022, the HUB for Community Innovation facilitated Community Roundtables to hear the voice of the residents and those who work in the Laney Walker and Harrisburg communities. The first roundtable welcomed 40 participants.
Community Advisory Council (H-CAC) - Starting in September 2022, the HUB will convene leaders in the community who have a strong desire to contribute to the growth and development of their neighbors in Laney Walker and Harrisburg. The council will
1) organize HUB Community Roundtables; 2) research, document and report on needs of the community; and 3) recruit problem solvers and solution leaders to serve as volunteers on the CAC or connect with partner organizations. The H-CAC provides grassroots insights to the HUB leadership and serves as the "voice of the Harrisburg and Laney Walker communities".
Meeting Frequency: Monthly first 12 months of HUB operations (starting September); every other month thereafter
