What We Do

The Day Center

Living on the streets is tough – mentally, physically, and emotionally. To survive, those experiencing homelessness need access to basic services and safe spaces to be during the day. Transition Projects’ Day Center is that point of access. The Day Center helps connect people to a wide range of resources and services – seven days a week, 365 days-a-year.
