Walk-In Center

Move Beyond Crisis

The WALK-IN CENTER (WIC) allows healing to begin with a place to sit, someone to hear your story, a toothbrush, and a bed for the night. We can provide referrals, shelter, help replace a lost birth certificate, assist you with enrolling in benefits, get you help, and partner with you in goal-setting or understanding your needed next steps.

General Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 8:30am – 1pm and 2pm – 4:30pm
Friday: 8:30am – 1pm
For general referrals, inquiries and case management of individuals and families.
