A light breakfast is available each morning.
Guests may leave items in their rooms during the day.
Computer access, wifi, a movie room, library and games are available to all guests.
We open at 6pm each evening and check in runs from 6pm-6:30pm. We close each morning at 8am. Guests may leave items in their rooms during the day. Guests who are working can arrange a different check in time that works with their work schedule.
We partner with you to help you achieve your goals. We can help with job searches, connecting you to housing resources, seeking treatment, or providing a safe space to debrief. Guests check in weekly with their Care Coordinators.
