Expectations

We really want you to come in and use our services to get what you need. To make our Drop-In Center a great place for you, we need you to meet some basic expectations when you visit us.

We ask that you:

  • Show respect by treating others the way you deserve to be treated—no violence, abuse, threats, foul language, sexual activity, gang-related activity/clothing, or racial, homophobic or religious slurs.
  • Help maintain safety for you and other youth by coming sober, with no weapons, drugs, or alcohol, and by respecting other people’s needs and boundaries.
  • Take responsibility for the space, your personal items, your words and actions.
  • Show empathy through understanding that everyone has their own views and experiences.
  • Promote and support the community at the Drop-In Center by understanding that everyone who meets the requirements and follows the necessary guidelines has the right to come to the Drop-In Center.

In return, you can expect us to:

  • Treat you fairly and with respect.
  • Maintain safety by enforcing all rules and upholding all expectations (with your help).
  • Take responsibility by doing what we say we are going to do.
  • Show empathy by understanding that you have your own views and experiences.
  • Promote and support the community of the Drop-In Center by upholding these expectations.
