The Southwest Hub is a team of professionals from several agencies, serving the Southwest. The Hub meet weekly to address specific situations involving individuals or families who have significant probability of experiencing harm if they do not receive some type of intervention.
The Hub table work collaboratively to develop an immediate and coordinated response to mobilize resources and supports with the intent of reducing the risk for those involved in a timely manner.
The Hub work together to review situations brought to their attention through a referral form submitted by an agency or community member to determine if the case meets the criteria for imminent risk of harm or victimization.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a state of acutely elevated risk and need help getting connected to supports and services then please make a referral by contacting any one of the agencies listed in the table below.

All details of a referral are kept confidential
Hub Tables use a four-filter process to determine if individual cases meet the acutely elevated risk threshold, to guide decision-making regarding whether or not to share private and confidential information, and to determine if collaborative intervention is necessary to mitigate risk. Only the agencies identified as potential supports will be given access to personal information of the referred case.
