What We Do

The Resource 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’ Resource Center is that point of access. The Resource Center helps connect people to a wide range of resources and services – seven days a week, 365 days-a-year.
