The HUB has been developed by New Vision Unlimited (NewVU), a nationally registered, not-for-profit community development organization that has been working in distinct locations since 2006.

Our Mission & Strategic Direction

To empower people to step out of the confines of their day to day reality
and move forward with a newly inspired, directed and energized sense of who they are
and how they fit into the needs of the world around them.

We carry out this mission by working within strategic partnerships to identify opportunities for growth, offer logistical and planning support where needed, and teach skills that equip people to make change within their own lives and communities.
