HUBS Evaluation and Replication

In September, the Housing Upgrades to Benefit Seniors program (HUBS) ended its first round of the
Capital Expansion program grant through the support of the Weinberg Foundation and the City of
Baltimore. We are excited to announce that we surpassed our goal of providing major home repairs to
1,125 homes throughout Baltimore City.

The HUBS program was recently evaluated by Impaq International to understand better the impact the
program has to help older adults age in the communities of their choice by providing vital health and
safety-related home repairs.

On December 10, 2018, Elder Services hosted the HUBS Evaluation and Replication Forum to announce the findings of the Evaluation report. The goal of the forum was to reach a consensus on
recommendations for HUBS sustainability in Baltimore City and replication outside of the City.

In addition to the HUBS Leadership team and Site partners, over 50 stakeholders around Baltimore City
were in attendance. Participants broke out into work groups and designed a strategic plan for
replication in cities around the country.

We are excited by the continued support and participation of our partners and left the forum feeling
even more excited for the next three year-round ahead. To learn more about the HUBS program and
other programs within Elder Services, please contact HUBS manager Molly Wisniewski at
