Meals, hygiene, respite from the streets, engagement activities, and legal counsel

New Avenues’ Drop-In Day Services Center is a safe space where youth experiencing homelessness can receive three meals a day, six days a week, as well as access to showers, laundry, clothing, drug and alcohol recovery and mental-health supports, computers and internet, free legal counsel, monthly veterinary clinics for those with pets, and engagement activities focused on skill-building, music and art, health and wellness, recreation, and self-empowerment. Our Drop-In staff also connect youth to other wraparound supports (education, job training/placement, culturally specific services, housing, and more) that help them exit homelessness and prepare for the future.

Youth aged 16-24 who wish to access our Drop-In Day Services Center must first be screened into the Homeless Youth Continuum. For information about screening criteria, contact the Access and Reception Center at 503.432.3986.
