Where families are Healthy, Caring, Learning & Growing
Keeping your family safe and healthy can have its challenges. Strengthen your family’s health by connecting with staff and participating in Hub activities. Get health tips, find insurance, doctors, dentists, and activities that promote wellness. Health staff at your Hub are available by appointment to meet with you, provide individual assessment, and assistance.
Community Hubs offer classes, groups, and activities for expectant parents and families with children ages 0-18, staffed by a team of family engagement, literacy and health specialists.
You are your child’s first and most important teacher. Hubs offer a learning center of resources and tools to help your child build strong language skills. Meet other families at story times, check out new books, story time kits, play centers and workshops to support talking, reading and singing with your child daily. Visit a Hub and connect with one of the Early Childhood Literacy Specialists to learn more.
Children’s behavior is linked to their development. Hubs provide activities to better understand and support your child’s development. Help your child with making friends and sharing feelings through a Play & Learn, check out an ASQ kit, complete a developmental questionnaire, and find parenting resources to help you manage changing behaviors. Family Engagement Specialists are available by appointment to meet with you at your Hub.
