Drop-in centers are a good place to cool your heels for a while, grab a coffee and a shower, wash some clothes and have a look at what’s on offer. They will normally have meals available for free or a couple of dollars. You may want to have a yarn to a duty worker and tell them a bit about your circumstances and what your immediate needs are, and they will steer you in the right direction. If you are moving around a bit they will hold your mail for you, as long as collect it every week.

Most centres run activities during the day so it’s a chance to stay out of your own head for a while. There is a lot of information at street level so they are a good place to stay informed about what is happening. They do work with a lot of individuals who have complicated issues so you will be rubbing shoulders with a lot of different people. Try not to get too involved with the politics and the food chain: there are a lot of people who are skilled in the art of survival, so you don’t want to wind up as causality.
