Dorothy's Drop-In Center

  • Dorothy's Place

At the Drop-In Center, clients receive trauma-informed care* from our trained staff to get assistance into transitional and permanent housing, to sign up for benefits and assistance programs, to obtain information on substance abuse counseling, and to learn about physical and mental wellness.

The Drop-In Center offers a respite from the daily life of a homeless individual by offering basic needs services that include restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, and a place to receive mail from loved ones. 

We offer a Clothes Closet that provides new and gently used clothing, as well as personal hygiene supplies, that have been provided from groups and individuals throughout the community. To donate clothing or supplies, click here.

*What is Trauma-informed care?

Homelessness is traumatic. It can involve the loss of home, community, stability, safety, and social networks. Trauma Informed Care is an evidence-based practice that teaches service providers and their organizations about the triggers and vulnerabilities of trauma survivors. Trauma Informed Care helps providers to provide care to trauma survivors more effectively, while avoiding re-traumatization.
