Community Resource Exchange

Spring 2020

When you’re experiencing homelessness, being able to go to one place and receive all sorts of services can be extremely helpful. That’s what the Community Resource Exchange is all about.

We bring everything to one place. Volunteers work one-on-one with people experiencing homelessness to make sure they get everything they need, and want, out of the event. Services provided at the event include hot meals, haircuts, new shoes, job interviews, housing resources, dental exams and more.
