    Columbus House’s mission is to serve people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless by providing shelter and housing and by fostering their personal growth and independence. Support people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 Pandemic by volunteering at the Drop-In Center at Columbus House Annex. The drop-in center will function as a triage site to identify and provide resources to people experiencing homelessness while connecting them to medical and behavioral health services, as well as providing basic services like food, showers, clothing. The center will continue to open through end of August.
