Create Resilient Community HUBs

The Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) is an alliance of residents, neighborhood and merchant associations, nonprofits and faith–based organizations, foundations and academic institutions that advance resilience at the community level with a bottom up, grassroots approach. The NEN supports the development of HUBs, which are networks of organizations that advances the community’s overall preparedness on a daily basis, as well as provides essential support to residents as they recover from a stressful event of any size. The NEN supports HUBs in crafting a culturally competent resilience action plan for the mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery phases of a disaster. There are currently 12 HUBs that are running or being launched in San Francisco.
