Driving Collaboration and Innovation in order to solve our community’s challenges.
As one of the United Way’s five bold plays that resulted from a strategic planning process, the Hub for Social Innovation was developed as a key United Way initiative to drive collaboration and innovation in the way our community collectively tackles major social challenges.
The Hub for Social Innovation is a new resource for the community to research, partner, develop, and own creative solutions to our most severe social issues. It will be both a physical space (located on United Way’s first floor) and an ongoing service by the United Way for all sectors of our community. It will exist to provide access to community data, develop partnerships around key issues and launch solutions through best practice workshops and trainings.
The focus of the Hub is on the collective engagement of various sectors in our community collaborating through human-centered design leading to the production of new innovative solutions and accelerated change.
