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.

We offer services to those who have been referred by the Coordinated Housing

CHAMP assessment that can be completed in the VMC Bush Family Refuge

Once referred to the Resource Center, neighbors will need to check in Mon-Fri
before 9:00am in order maintain their place on the waiting list. If neighbors are
a member of a household referred to the Resource Center, all household
members will need to be present. New members will be selected from the
waitlist based on case management capacity, CHAMP score, and the number of
times a neighbor has checked in at the Resource Center. New members must be
present at 9:00am in order to be selected.
