Day Program

Many basic services are offered at our Day Program. Please stop by if you need to talk to a case manager about applying for food stamps, getting ID, or receiving mail.

The Day Program at the Homeless Services Center is the hub of operations at A-SPAN where clients have access to a wide range of wraparound services. A-SPAN is unique in that our services are low barrier, as clients are not required to produce identification, sign a service agreement or engage in case management to access them.

Programs include street outreach, case management, employment counseling, the Permanent Supportive Housing Program, and the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program. A-SPAN’s Day Program is designed to assist clients in addressing their personal barriers to self-sufficiency with the support of staff and volunteers. Day Program hours are Monday-Friday 9 am to 4 pm.

At the Homeless Services Center Day Program, people can:

  • Take a shower
  • Do their laundry
  • Use the phone or mailing address to connect with loved ones or to apply for a job or benefits
  • Sit with a case manager
  • Get connected to the Job START Program
  • Get new clean clothes
  • Get a referral to mental health or substance abuse treatments
  • Get a referral for medical, eye, or dental care
  • Seek assistance with eviction prevention or housing
