What We Do
Here at Hub City Outreach Center, we provide prevention services to help individuals develop the skills to achieve social, behavioral, and mental health and wellness. Prevention Services range from education programs to help our youth set and achieve goals, presentations to educate groups on a non-schedule/semi-schedule basis, events that foster positive social interaction and community involvement and referrals. Below, you can read more about our services.
Currently, HCOC is using two prevention education curriculums. The programs we are using are Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG) Youth Connection and Positive Action. Each of the prevention programs will be conducted in a group setting. The group sizes are typically between 10-12 participants, with 1-2 facilitators. In a small group setting the youth are provided with a great level of attention and the care needed for them to succeed both in and outside of the class/group. Even in our groups with adults, we typically come out with 2 facilitators.
A few examples of sites we can provide services in are:
Mental health organizations, Primary care, Community sites, Youth serving organizations, Suicide prevention organizations, Behavioral health treatment and recovery centers, Tobacco control focused organizations, School safety and health organizations, Highway safety groups, Injury prevention centers, Violence prevention organizations, Recovery community sites, Reproductive, maternal and child health organizations, HIV/AIDS prevention organizations, Substance abuse treatment centers, Education of all types- schools, alt. schools, adult learning sites, Corrections, ect.
If your specific organization does not fall into any of the above categories, that is ok! Contact us and we can converse to see what assistance we can be!

Have you ever heard of it?
Here are Hub City Outreach Center, we believe there are a few ways that our neighbors can pay-it-forward!
We began giving school supplies to students because they need the tools to grow and excel. This program can give a student an entire year supply of age-appropriate school supplies for about $23.00 per backpack/student.
We began to provide meals during the holidays because families should be able to spend quality time together. This program provides meals to nominated families during the Thanksgiving holiday. We are able to provide families a full meal for about $47.00 per meal/family.
We began providing gifts for children in order to foster developmental growth in young children. This program gives at-risk children toys during the December holidays. [We try to stay between the $50.00 - $70.00 range per child.]
We began our partnership with the South Plains Food Bank because no child or family should go hungry, ever. This program gives the opportunity for people to "buy" a food voucher for another family. Food Vouchers unit price is about $12.00 per voucher/family.
Every service, every time, always free.
Hub City Outreach Center runs 100% on donations and grants.
