The HUB For Community Innovation Is Filling The Gaps In Augusta

"This community has done something really amazing with these two buildings, and what we have in front of us is how we make these buildings come to life," Shell Berry, president of the Community Foundation of Augusta, Ga., tells WRDW.

Berry is referring to HUB for Community Innovation, a multi-million-dollar, 40,000-square-foot development in Augusta's Laney Walker and Harrisburg neighborhoods that's home to the Boys and Girls Club, Rise Augusta, Augusta Locally Grown, and a number of other nonprofits.

The nonprofits hope to use the space to provide fresh food, health care, education, and mental health services to the community, and WRDW takes a look at some of those services: Rise Augusta will provide remediation and tutoring for kids who are behind in reading, as well as food, school supplies, and clothes; Augusta Locally Grown will have a full kitchen; Harrisburg Family Healthcare will provide care for patients who don't have insurance, as well as offer mental health services; and the Literacy Center will teach literacy and provide free, high-quality literacy classes for children and adults.
