Drop-In Center

Come As You Are

We Are Passionate About Creating a Space

Where You Can Be Seen, Known and Loved

Welcome to our drop-in center.  Make yourself at home.  We are here for you.  Whether you want to visit for an hour or are ready to go from just surviving to happily thriving, you are welcome. You are valued.  You are not your past.  You have choices.  No strings attached ~ we ask nothing of you.  

We are a safe haven for you to shower, enjoy a hot meal, have access to clean clothes and have the support of the community. We want to encourage and empower you. Love, acceptance, and life-long support are yours for the asking. Want to dream again?

In the words of our Founder and Executive Director, Tina Pennington, “We all need a safe place. A haven. A place where we are fully seen, heard and loved. As human beings, it is our job to fight injustice, and come alongside those who have been affected by trauma and tragedy. Listening to your needs and heart brings us to the realization that long-term restoration and care is vital.”


We are giving you the freedom to choose when to use our services and we respect your privacy. With fresh clothes, showers, rest, laundry services, food, and counseling the drop-in center will serve to refresh your body, soul, mind, and spirit.  

Deliberately located in the heart of the city, we are accessible.  We are a place of refuge and will provide immediate tangible needs and resources offering support and hope. We will advocate for you, and our community will be involved through collaboration and outreach efforts. Our goal is to educate and empower our community with information and resources needed to combat human trafficking in our neighborhoods.
