    Welcome to the 26th year of the Center for the Homeless

    The Center has served more than 55,000 men, women and children by linking them with the programs, agencies and people who can help them break the cycle of homelessness. Partnerships have been forged and fostered to allow us to offer the best services to the people who need them the most.

    Did you know?

    • Every night more than 275 people call the Center home, and at least 60 of those people are children.
    • We had the first Montessori classroom in the nation built specifically to teach homeless children. 
    • We offer a variety of programs like therapy, addictions counseling, childcare, GED prep, tutoring, job skills training, fitness classes, medical service and more!
