JP Hub and Hub Model

A proactive approach to building safer communities

The HUB is a new approach to proactively address and prevent crises before they happen. Pioneered in Canada and now making its way to the U.S., the HUB model brings together local law enforcement and community organizations to address housing, health care, substance abuse and mental health, among others.

The HUB team meets weekly to discuss clients facing elevated levels of risk, and to develop immediate, coordinated and integrated responses.

MassHousing has been a key partner in bringing the HUB to Boston from Chelsea. For more information, contact Kara Johnson.
