Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Drop-In Center

The Drop-In Center serves as a crucial support hub for TAY aged 16-25, especially those facing homelessness or unstable housing. These youth confront challenges like restricted access to housing, employment, and mental health services. Within the safe space of "The Post" Drop-In Center, youth have access to peer support specialist, employment specialist, weekly table talks, events, and more, equipping them with essential resources and support to overcome these obstacles.
