CONNECTIONS CENTER

Connection Center Logo

This Facility is by Appointment Only

The Connections Center is where foster youth, unaccompanied students experiencing homelessness, and families in transition can have a soft, supportive, and safe place to land to get the information and resources they need to make their lives better. 

In order to qualify for these services, your situation must be defined under the McKinney-Vento Act as experiencing some form of homelessness or be a foster youth. Click HERE for McKinney-Vento information.

We have space to meet and connect you with resources, a laundry facility, a shower, hygiene kits, a food pantry, and a clothing closet.
