Drop-In Centers

TRAC’s Drop-In Centers provide a home-like atmosphere as a constant home base for youth who are experiencing instability. This consistent “front door” ensures youth will not be turned away, but connected with their needs whether through a TRAC service or referral. At TRAC Drop-In Centers, individuals have access to meals, snacks and a food pantry. All youth are able to receive mail and store their belongings in lockers. They also have access to computers and the internet. Youth receive emergency transportation needs and other supportive items (school supplies, clothing, feminine hygiene, diapers, baby formula and similar supplies). TRAC employs a Drop-In Case Manager who facilitates this program. TRAC anticipates, based on historical data, that 15% of TRAC’s time and 15% of expenses will be spent on Drop-In Center services.
