Drop In Center
The Drop In Center provides hot meals, games/crafts, counseling, and assistance with immediate needs three times per week

Street Outreach Program
The Street Outreach program is an opportunity to meet youth where they are; held in conjunction with the Drop In Center hours

I am the chapter's Director of Community Resource Development. Volunteers interested in helping youth living on the streets can apply their talents as it best suits them. One can work directly with the youth or as support in the background. Thank you for considering.
