FP YouthOutCry Foundation, Inc.

(D.B.A The HUBB Arts & Trauma Center)

 

is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Newark, NJ. The HUBB Arts & Trauma Center is located at 135 Prince Street in Newark, NJ nestled on the site of a subsidized housing complex, a neighborhood of low-to very low-income families of color. The HUBB has become a beacon, offering beneficial activities and opportunities to our neighbors, in an ongoing attempt to build equity. This has included job fairs, health screenings, and discussions on mental wellness, violence, and abuse. Local officials also call upon us to host events where they engage with constituents. Because of this trend in programming, The Mayor of Newark appointed us as its 8th "Center of Hope."
