Community Support Hubs

Community Support Hubs represent and support the participating PPC institutions that are part of their membership or community.  Support Hubs act as PPC communication liaisons, providing two way information sharing between the PPC and the individual smaller organizations.  They also help their communities by filling the roll of promoter of events, organizers for community activities and offer participation support as needed.

Current Community Support Hubs include:
