Why the HUB?

When families experience a housing crisis, there are many other issues that often accompany that crisis. Homelessness, food, legal help, medical help, job readiness and training are just some of the other issues that may require attention, leaving the client with nowhere to turn, or overwhelmed with decisions to be made.
A network of agencies and individuals has been created in the Southland to help with these extenuating circumstances, and the HUB will facilitate the referrals to these individuals and/or agencies.

How the HUB works?

An individual may access the Hub through referral from an agency or organization or by contacting the Hub directly. The Hub, through its network, will refer the client to the appropriate place for help with their specific need.
