We Need YOU!!

As many of you know, Arch Street Center is one of the many organizations struggling due to the state's budget impasse.
Since we do not want to compromise our service to our members, we are asking for help.
Our pantry is getting bare and are in desperate need of food. We feed approximately 40 members a day, many who are food insecure.
Here's a list of food, paper products, and cleaning supplies that we need.

PLUS, we were awarded a VERY generous anonymous matching grant of $10,000....

That brings our total to $29,805!!!!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!


In response to this morning's article about state prisons, parks, driver license centers, and county assistance offices being essential, and therefore funded, Arch Street Center members would like to say the following...

It's Not Just a Place to Go, It's a Place to Belong

Arch Street Center has been a valuable community resource since 1983. Our mission is to support the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness. The Center is open seven days a week, providing meals, and a program that encourages, empowers, and educates individuals living with serious mental illness while providing basic human needs like shelter and food that contribute to giving life meaning and value. We currently have close to 200 members and serve approximately 40 individuals a day. There are other places in the city to find a meal, there is only one place to go for people to receive integrated services 365 days a year. Our members get a sense of stability from Arch Street that helps them make better decisions and be more productive members of the community.

What our Members need is a warm and comfortable place they can go to for support, to meet friends, and to share activities. Arch Street Center meets these needs with a comprehensive social rehabilitation program.

For our members, Arch Street Center isn't just a place to go, it's a place to belong.

Many of Arch Street Center's members experience homelessness. For these members, the Center's laundry facilities, locker room, and shower are essential. We try and meet the special needs of these members with as many services as possible. We have a clothing bank for men and women that also include some household items for when they are able to secure housing.

A membership-based center is a healthy, appropriate place for individuals with serious mental health issues. The Center provides an opportunity for members to become part of a community that welcomes them and supports them. Many of our members have lost their family and community connections outside of what is available at Arch Street Center, and that makes our services even more critical to their success in recovery.

Arch Street Center's "Moving Home" Capital Campaign

Arch Street Center has moved into our new home: 629 North Market Street!
This new space will allow us plentiful parking, a larger facility, and a bright future for our Members.
To make this move happen, we are relying on the generosity of our donors.

Please consider a gift to our capital campaign.

We have a variety of donation options to meet all budgets.

Check out our video done by NxtBook Media that highlights how special the Center is for our Members as well as for our community.
