  2. ORGANIZATIONAL– The faith based organizations, businesses, non-profits and community organizations of the MET community have the capacity to support both the needs of their existing constituencies, and emerging audiences, during times of stress.
  3. INDIVIDUAL– Every resident has the capacity to care for themselves, and their neighbors, during times of stress.

The HUB

The Empowered Communities Program‘s Neighborhood HUB initiative supports neighborhoods as they create community-based networks of organizations that advance the overall preparedness of communities across San Francisco. The HUB initiative provides essential support to residents as they recover community stressors and disasters. A national conversation has begun which points to the importance of creating strategies for local organizations and residents to assume lifesaving responsibilities in the event of a disaster. These activities include search and rescue, mass feeding, and supporting people sheltering in place. To learn more about the HUB, CLICK HERE
