Urban Community Outreach will host its drop-in center at an interim location this Sunday, April 21, 2019.  Morning volunteers should report as usual to the Congregational church at 241 Cedar Ave. at/after 8:30 am to help with food prep.

Volunteers who are scheduled to help with serving meals and clean-up should report to Beacon, 439 W. Anaheim St., about 1 mile north of our regular location.  Parking is available on the street and nearby Seaside park.

The drop-in center is planning to begin lunch service at 1 pm and remain open until 4 pm. We will also be distributing clothing to our guests.

Thank you to our guests and volunteers  for your continued patience and support.

If you have any questions, please contact Julie at (562)225-6416.


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.
