The coronavirus pandemic has impacted virtually every facet of American life. Since March 2020, cities, towns, and villages nationwide have permanently lost 110,000 small businesses, more than 6 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19, 47 percent of residents are unemployed, and millions of children and youth have not had in-person instruction since schools closed. While efforts to mitigate the spread and impact of COVID-19 varies across municipalities, the role of city officials has remained the same: to protect and serve people who call their community “home”. Creating Community Learning Hubs is an emerging solution to do exactly that.
