Day Center

Day Center

The Day Center, originally conceptualized by our Guest Advisory Committee, provides our most vulnerable guests a respite during the day where they can take refuge from the outdoor elements, interact with others, enjoy quiet time, or relax in a safe space.

Single women, families, and guests over the age of 60 can use the Day Center, located in our Dining Room, every day from 7 a.m. to   4 p.m. 

Margo Lomeli, our Day Center Coordinator, serves coffee before breakfast and schedules activities such as arts and crafts, games and movie nights. The Day Center also houses a library stocked with books for children and adults. In addition, a nurse visits once a week to perform basic health checks, and occasionally a lawyer provides complimentary legal advice.
