When you arrive at the Innovation Center, you will be greeted by one of our staff members. We always conduct an initial screening with guests first to learn their background and help them receive the best care possible.
The goal of the Innovation Center is to help the men and women we serve to develop the life skills needed to change their lives and get themselves off the streets. This is done with the assistance of our trained staff and volunteers. The guests work with our case worker, vocational specialist, and housing specialists to establish initial contact and relationship with the people we serve daily.
The intake process is done in a one-on-one setting so that you have the privacy you need to share your story. There is some paperwork that you will need to fill out and a staff member will go over the guidelines with you and help you get ready to participate in programs and ready to connect with local area agencies. You will be asked some additional questions to better understand what brought you to Keystone Mission.
Each week you can find Bev sitting in the Innovation Center, having one-on-one conversations, leading group discussions, and building rapport among the homeless community.
