Gathering Place Homeless Drop-in Center


CAMBA's Gathering Place Homeless Drop-in Center started in 2003.  Each day the Brooklyn Drop-in Center serves homeless men and women age 18 and older.  Open 13-hours-a-day/seven days a week, the center provides a safe, sanitary and stable alternative to the street using an individualized and flexible approach to serve the hard-to-reach homeless population.  Services available include two meals a day, shower and laundry facilities, access to clothing, mail and phone services, recreational activities, case management services, entitlement(s) assistance, comprehensive medical and mental healthcare services, and referrals to treatment resources.  The center’s goal is to (re)connect clients to treatment services and assist in their transition into a shelter or permanent housing.  Gathering Place Homeless Drop-in Center serves 500 men and women annually.  Qualified candidates will be transported to and from a respite site every evening.  The respite sites provide dinner and a temporary bed assignment.
