Offering a transitional day program for the homeless, the Resource Center is a case management program which assists people in their efforts to work their way out of homelessness. Every member is assigned a case manager who works with them to overcome barriers to housing and self-sufficiency. When housing is achieved, the case manager remains involved until independence is achieved. Various classes, a meal program, showers, laundry facilities and social activities are also offered as a part of the programming.
