Drop-In Center FAQ:

Is there a cost to participate?


There is no cost to participate, simply show up during the hours above, and you can take part in the activities we have scheduled for that day, or just speak with one of our youth mentors who are available during the time.


Can I bring my parents/guardian/caretaker?


Of course!  Your parent, guardian, social worker or counselor are welcome to come in with you to tour the Center.

How do I know what's going on in the center?

You can download the monthly calendar from the main page!

Do you ever close unexpectedly?

There are times due to sickness, emergency or due to other issues that the drop in center hours may need to be cancelled.  You can watch our website and social media where we will announce this.  It's always prudent to check these sources before you stop down, or give us a call at 716-855-0221 to confirm!
