Adult Services programs are the place to socialize, make friends and access community resources. Here, you can benefit from recreational activities, street outreach, harm reduction services and crisis intervention and support. Continue learning at any age by upgrading your reading, writing, math and basic computer skills. Or enjoy the hearty and nutritious meals served during our community dining program.
