Hub Sites in San Leandro

The City of San Leandro is supporting the development of a network of resilience hubs, spaces and blocks, through workshops, consulting and funding opportunities.

This network of sites – including places of worship, community centers, and neighborhoods – will center the most vulnerable populations and focus on disaster preparedness, community care and belonging, and climate mitigation and adaptation to be “ready for anything”.
