The mission of the Harry Tompson Center is to provide a day shelter for the homeless where a variety of services are provided, including attending to basic hygienic needs, as well as attempting to find employment, housing, counseling and treatment for addiction and mental illness providing a degree of dignity and comfort to the chronically homeless, with the goal of re-integrating as many of the homeless as possible back into mainstream society.

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe in helping meet the needs of our homeless guests in a way that offers compassion, dignity and respect. We believe in the healing powers of smiles, hugs and knowing a friend’s name. We believe everyone deserves to have their basic needs met and that everyone deserves to have a home. We seek the most vulnerable of our guests and work hard to find appropriate housing for them. We believe in the power of a loving community and seek to build community with all of our guests, staff, volunteers and supporters.
