Central Outreach & Advocacy Center (OAC) works in partnership with individuals and families to assist them in avoiding or overcoming homelessness and to advocate on their behalf.
Central OAC serves guests one-on-one to meet critical basic needs and offers transformational programs that empower our guests to return to stable, permanent housing.
Guided by our guests' experiences, Central OAC engages in education and coalition-building that call our community to build better structures of care and dismantle systems that cause homelessness.
