The center is designed to serve individual men and women who are homeless, individuals and families who are precariously housed, and others who require linkage to community services.

Individuals and families who are not homeless, but need health and human services are assisted to make direct contact with agencies that can respond to their need.

The center has a 90-bed temporary shelter capacity, 62 of which are in bedrooms that accommodate from two to eight individuals, and 28 are dormitory style. In addition, there is a seasonal (December 15 to March 14) sit-up shelter for 15 individuals.

The center receives referrals for temporary shelter from community agencies, religious institutions, and law enforcement agencies. Those referred to the center may have a history of substance abuse, physical and mental health problems, and unemployment, in addition to homelessness. Referral forms are required from community-based programs such as hospitals, health centers, mental health centers, and the jail.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided to guests of the temporary shelter. Lunch and dinner are provided daily for individuals and families at risk of homelessness who live in the community.
Lunch: 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Dinner: 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Efforts to place clients in permanent rental housing begin immediately following client assessment. The center maintains relationships with real estate agents and landlords for placement. When a housing placement is arranged a neighborhood based team provides service coordination and follow-up.

The center is establishing relationships with health and human service agencies to provide financial resources necessary to support housing placement or emergency financial assistance to individuals and families in proximate danger of becoming homeless.
