At $5.00 a year, Arch Street Center membership dues are a way for members to feel a sense of ownership of the Center, providing a hand up, not a hand out. But the fee doesn’t cover the cost of benefits that membership provides, just as the $1.00 per dinner does not cover the cost of the meal. Because many of our members would not be able to participate in activities, or even membership, if these fees were raised, contributions from community partners like you are crucial to our ability to provide our members with meals, activities, and a safe space to call their own.
Arch Street Center has supported the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness since 1983.
Arch Street Center isn’t just a place to go… it’s a place to BELONG!
There is no more basic human need than that of sustenance. Arch Street Center provides two full meals, snacks, coffee, tea and cold beverages daily. Additionally we occasionally provide care packages of canned and packages goods for members in particular need. Many of our members experience food insecurity and periods of homelessness. Our food offerings are a vital resource and for some members may be the only meals they have on a given day. We estimate that over 45 members eat at the Center on a daily basis.
That’s nearly 18,000 meals per year!
