THIS IS NOT A RADICAL BELIEF, WE ARE ACTUALLY DOING IT!
Day Centers introduce homeless individuals to a safe, supportive environment where prevention and supportive services are offered in an effort to reduce risk, stabilize, and connect them to services. Comprehensive services at Day Centers may include: meals, clothing, case management, workforce development, referrals to community resources, crisis counseling, support group services. Reintegration of homeless individuals into the mainstream may not only prevent continued homelessness, but also may reduce the immediate individual and social costs of homelessness such as premature death, emergency room visits, arrests, and loss of human capital.

CAMPBELL COUNTY DAY CENTER
The Campbell County Day Center was establish in September 2019. This center serves up to 50 homeless individuals daily by serving breakfast and lunch, helping with resume development, case management, life skills classes, workforce development, and referrals to community resources. This center is operated by volunteers and is ran off of donations only. No federal or state resources support the center. We are open Monday – Friday 9 am – 4 pm. Our plan is to create more day centers in the region. Which county is ready to open one?
The individuals shown above have all came through the day center, are in recovery, and/or are in permanent housing.
We all live BETTER when we feel LOVED.
