HUB Programming

We offer skills-based classes on several topics, as well as 1:1 coaching sessions and basic needs items to qualifying mothers.  These services are delivered at each Hub by a licensed mental health provider and a Community Mental Health Ambassador – a mom from the New Haven community who connects families with health/wellness resources. Our programs are offered to mothers and other female primary caregivers who live in New Haven County. Moms can inquire about eligibility and enrollment at any of the HUB locations.
