Welcome to Urban Community Outreach

We are a community who firmly believes in helping those in need and the less fortunate. Come join us.

The Drop In Center is a community based center for homeless people, and those in need in downtown Long Beach.

It is the Urban Community Outreach’s vision to provide safe temporary shelter, food, support services, and help toward self-sufficiency for homeless individuals and families in our community.
