Project Description

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.
