Mid-Coast Family Services set up Day Center for homeless residents

Mid-Coast Family Services will open a day center for homeless residents beginning Tuesday, February 26th.

The day center will provide a safe space to escape bad weather, as well as to provide services such as showers, case management consultation and access to internet and telephone.

The center will also provide snacks and clothing to help homeless residents without another option.

Team lead Mallory Thurman says she was inspired to set up the day center from an Austin area homeless coalition.

“I was truly inspired,” says Thurman. “I went to the arch in Austin, Texas. It’s the area homeless resource center and I left there completely motivated and inspired and decided, Victoria needs something like this.”

The center will open twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday from 1 pm to 4 pm for the foreseeable future.
