The HUB for Community Innovation is an outreach center in Augusta’s Harrisburg community. The project began in 2019 when the MCG Foundation, which owns much of the land around a former 15th Street Kroger property, connected with project co-leaders the Community Foundation of the CSRA and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the CSRA in an effort to create sustainable change in Harrisburg and the Laney-Walker communities, which flank the downtown medical district, organizers said.
The HUB consists of two buildings with an aligned mission: One is a new 16,000 sq. ft. Boys and Girls Clubs headquarters. The second is a 33,000 sq. ft. facility that will house four local nonprofits – Augusta Locally Grown, the Augusta University Literacy Center, Harrisburg Family Health Care and RISE Augusta.
