The sanitation component allows us to open our doors 7 days per week from 7:00am to 10:00pm, allowing community members to use our restroom facilities. Additionally during the opening hours up to 9:30pm we provide a limited phone charging service in our front desk lobby.
Elica Health provides health services to our guests on certain days each week. They have health care providers and administrative staff at our Main Intake site and provide direct services as well as referrals as needed.
