Our Drop-In Center operates every Saturday from 9AM-12PM. Our Drop-In Center keeps us connected to the people we serve and offers a hot brunch at 10AM, clothing, hygiene products, bus passes, CES entry, case management, and linkage to resources. We need the support of our community in order to make our Drop-In Center successful. Our Drop-In Center is perfect for community groups, families, and organizations who want to work together to make a difference in the lives around them. We need groups interested in cooking and serving brunch for about 70 guests. We need folks to volunteer and share their talents with our guests. Are you an artist? Come and teach a class. Can you sing? Come entertain our guests. Can you play chess? Our guests are waiting to challenge you! Our Drop-In Center is a community and we invite you to come be a part of our family.
