Community hubs have been adapting their services in response to COVID-19 public health recommendations and precautions. In-person gatherings and programs have been cancelled or postponed to promote social distancing in solidarity with those most vulnerable to infection or with limited access to proper care or social safety nets. Some community hubs appear to be pivoting to focus on their core service offering: the most basic need they supply, that which their communities rely on them first and foremost.
Join this Civic Commons Catalyst Webinar to discuss the resiliency that community hubs inherently support in their communities, before, during and after crises. What is the role of the community hub now, amidst crises? What can they be doing? What have they already been doing to strengthen resiliency leading up to a crisis? And what do they represent in the vision of a stronger future afterwards? Register for this free webinar here.
