What are the Drop-in Centers?
The Drop-in Centers provide regularly scheduled programming such as recreational opportunities, social and health awareness workshops, access to computers and the Internet, a clothes closet, and food. Most importantly, Peer Partners lead activities that support young adults in building the necessary skills to successfully transition into adulthood.
"The Drop-in Center is the place where I can go to be myself." - Drop-in Center Participant.
Success at our Drop-in Centers is measured individually and is fluid according to how each participant defines self-efficacy. Each program's primary focus is on building quality relationships with all individuals so each may feel empowered and capable of voicing their needs and apply what they have learned to all other facets of their lives.
Promote socialization and community connectedness
Support academic and/or vocational exploration and growth
Encourage the development of independent living skills
Empower rising leaders and advocates
How it Works:
No referrals needed. Individuals who are 18-25 years of age may utilize the services anytime during open hours. Personal tours can be arranged for those wishing to see the site outside of open business hours.
Activities are voluntary. Program participants may opt in or out of any and all program activities. None of the resources, supports or activities offered are mandatory.
Participant feedback is highly encouraged and desired. Focus groups, advisory meetings, community meetings, evaluations, and an environment that welcomes feedback at any given time may be found at either program.
Community resources. On-site resources, partnerships with community programs, and help with linkages to services are provided as necessary to program participants.
Items to address basic needs. Food (hot meal, fresh produce, snacks, and take away), clothing and hygiene products are all available to those in need.
