Sheridan Hollow Drop-In Center
26 South Swan Street Albany, NY 12210
In 2006 the Drop-In Center opened its doors as a direct response to the Albany County's Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness. The Sheridan Hollow Drop-In Center is the only one of its kind in Albany County and assists individuals as they move toward self sufficiency. The Drop-In Center is a safe-haven during the day for homeless individuals and those at risk of homelessness providing showers, a laundry facility, play area for children, daily meal, lockers, access to an office for business purposes, weekly life skills groups, community room, clothing pantry, bus token program, and case management services. Case management includes crisis intervention, goal planning, assistance with life skills such as budgeting, self advocacy, resource exploration, and referrals to service providers.
In addition, the Drop-In Center also hosts onsite agencies who provide services such as a legal clinic, mental health outreach, employment and housing assistance, and healthy low-cost cooking workshops.
