John P. Guerry Hub for Social Innovation

The Hub for Social Innovation is designed to be a hub of activity, collaboration, and problem solving for our community.

What is The Hub?

The Hub is designed to connect people—from within United Way, from neighborhoods and organizations across our region, and from different sectors—with the intent of collaboratively developing creative solutions to our community’s most challenging social issues.

Ultimately, The Hub represents a bigger idea…

When we gather around real problems and work together toward shared goals, we’ll create lasting impact.

How it Works

Chattanooga area nonprofits have free access to the Hub spaces and priority for Hub reservations. Co-working day passes are also available for a $25 fee per person. Organizations that are not registered nonprofits, may submit an inquiry but will receive lower priority and will be charged a fee for usage. Parking is not provided but can be purchased through metered spaces on the street or nearby public parking garages.
