The Olivieri Drop-In Center for Homeless Adults


The Olivieri Drop in Center for Homeless Adults is located on 30th Street between 7th and 8th Avenue.   Opened 28 years ago as a women-only facility, in 2009, the Center transitioned to a co-ed program.   We offer on-site medical, mental health and substance abuse assessments as well as access to meals, clothing, showers, and rehabilitation and recovery programs. Utilizing a strong case management approach, the centers provide individual counseling, entitlement assistance, banking facilities, vocational training, money management and instruction in other independent living skills, all of which help clients successfully transition to housing.

The Center has comprehensive administrative, clinical and operations teams who are committed to excellence in programming.   All services are delivered in a safe, secure environment where respect and esteem for self and others are paramount.   The Center helps individuals achieve a place in society and a permanent home through the use of basic and therapeutic services.   Up to 90 street homeless people are served every day.

Collaborating with dozens of churches and synagogues throughout the city we are able to provide overnight beds to each client.   Each evening our clients are welcomed into one of these faith-based shelters where they find a respite from the streets and a warm and caring home for the night.
