Connections of Cumberland County operates the only walk-in Day Resource Center with case management that serves women and children who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. This center collaborates with other resources to bring a variety of services together in one easy-to-access location. Due to COVID-19, effective June 2, 2020 the Day Resource Center has reopened with mitigation strategies in place. Our operating hours are Tuesday – Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm. We are still accepting new clients virtually to reduce traffic volume at the Day Resource Center. Women (with or without children) who are experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity can initiate a new client intake by visiting: Connections of Cumberland County New Client Screening Form for more information.
