    About the Resilience Hubs Initiative

    The vision of the Resilience Hubs Initiative is to create a network of homes, schools, community gardens and neighborhood centers that are safe and sustainable spaces and “ready for anything” - much better prepared for natural disasters, climate change and other stresses in our community.  You can find more information here about the project.

    We want to support at least 10 sites from a diversity of communities to become Hubs over the next eight months, becoming more resilient, while strengthening their community ties and ready for disasters. In this call we will be introducing the NorCal Resilience Network and the 2020 cohort program, including the benefits of participation and commitments. All Hubs applications turned in by December 13th will be eligible to receive a $500 grant. You can apply here.

    WHY PARTICIPATE?

    • Gain access to potential funding opportunities for your resiliency projects.
    • Make your site more resilient! Be more prepared for the next disaster.
    • Promote your site! This is the opportunity to put your site on the map
    • Network and collaborate with other community leaders and projects. 
    • Learn new skills, from gardening to greywater to racial justice. 

    THE PROGRAM AND COMMITMENT

    1. Do a site assessment and neighborhood mapping exercise.
    2. Participate in an introductory workshop with fellow Hubs leaders.
    3. Work on a resiliency project, based on your site assessment, through a public facing event (workshop or work party), from installing a rainwater catchment system to completing an Emergency Plan and gathering supplies.
    4. Share a story about your project through our online platforms 
    5. Fill out pre- and post-evaluations and narratives 

     

    We are in search of sites which:

    • Already are resilience through the three pillars and want to showcase your work; 
    • Have just a few of the components and want to work toward becoming even more resilient
