GMC operates a Clubhouse Drop-In Center every day from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Our center is a safe space for people experiencing homelessness to come, feel welcome, and to simply belong. We call our center a clubhouse and encourage our guests to take ownership of and pride in the center. Guests help diffuse disputes, offer suggestions on areas for improvement, and help keep the center a clean and welcoming space.
What we do:
Showers and Laundry
We offer up to 20 showers and five loads of laundry a day on a first come, first serve basis. We provide all the basics: soap, shampoo, towels, razors, a laundry basket, laundry detergent, and, if needed, a temporary change of clothes.
Our case managers help guests determine what their needs are and identify the best steps for fulfilling those needs. We assist with benefits applications, referrals, housing applications, and counseling. Case managers are available in our center Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm.
Computers, Phone, and Mail
Guests are allowed to use the computers and phone in our center and may use GMC’s mailing address to receive mail. We believe in helping people stay connected to the world, whether it’s with family and friends, case workers, the doctor, or the news.
Coffee and Sandwiches
We have coffee and sandwiches for our guests while they are in our center. Though GMC is not a meal program, we strive to have coffee and sandwiches to help our guests last from breakfast to dinner.
GMC offers educational and fun programming in our center. Past and current programming includes a counseling group, a smoking cessation group, a knitting class, movie screenings, bingo, yoga, and more. These programs teach valuable skills, allow our guests to socialize, and provide a fun distraction from the harsh reality outside our center.
We have two psychiatrists and a general practitioner who come to GMC weekly. They perform basic health assessments in our center, write prescriptions, and give referrals. See our Health and Wellness page for more information.
