More than ever before, our unsheltered neighbors need a place to go so they can get off the streets and find a temporary safe haven.

We’re proud to announce the opening of the Oasis Drop-In Center, where TCAA offers resources and a brief refuge from the street. The Oasis Center is expected to serve 2,000 walk-in visitors in its first year.

The Oasis Drop-In Center is made possible through financial contributions from a private donor, StateFarm, Silicon Valley Bank, and the involvement of Circle the City, Shoebox Ministries, and Homeless ID project.
