The Resource Center improves the daily lives of our clients and dinner guests by offering: access to information and referral to support services, personal mail and telephone use, token assistance to reach shelter and support services, toiletries, blankets, over the counter meds, and crisis intervention.
The Center, with a staff of two employees assisted by over 20 volunteers a month, also offers basic case management services,  advocacy, bi-lingual services, immigration assistance, hair cuts,  and prescription assistance.  The Center also coordinates the on-site services of: Legal Aid lawyers, Department of Veterans Affairs outreach workers, barbers, and tax preparers.
The Resource Center staff works in partnership with the staff from Community Vision, also housed in Progress Place, to best serve the needs of the men and women utilizing the services of both programs. Our staff also works closely with other providers in the County and the greater DC area, including Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless, Bethesda Cares and other providers.
