Serving Columbia Since 1888
At the Men's Center, we provide food for men and women experiencing homelessness on a daily basis, as well as emergency shelter for men that are currently homeless.
We also have two long term life development programs, as well as an addiction recovery program. Our goal is to help those vulnerable to homelessness gain the motivation and skills they need to acquire long term housing and employment.
