The Drop-In Center is a place for young people ages 14-24 to eat a meal, use a computer or phone, do laundry, get clothing, take a shower, and get other basic needs met.

The Drop-In Center is a safe and welcoming place to:

  • Eat a free meal. We serve lunch and dinner every weekday at 12 and 5pm and self-serve breakfast is also available.
  • Use a computer, printer, or phone
  • Do laundry
  • Get clothing
  • Take a shower
  • Take a class on topics such as life skills, job readiness, parenting, or safe dating.
  • Get help with needs such as applying for jobs or state benefits, or finding a place to live.

Drop-In is a safe space and we welcome all LGBTQQ* youth ages 14 – 24. For more information, stop by the Drop-In, email, or call 802-864-7423 x208.


Monday-Friday from 10:00 am-6:00 pm (Please Note: Between 1pm and 4pm we are closed for specific programming and individual meetings.)


12:00pm and 5:00pm, M-F. Self-serve breakfast is also available.


191 Bank Street Burlington, VT 05401

“Maybe when I am established I can come back and volunteer here. Seriously, you guys are keeping me alive and the food is delicious! I am just so grateful.”

With renovations soon to begin at the Drop-In Center, we are not taking most clothing donations at this time.

We are still in need of a few specialty items:

  • Weather appropriate gloves
  • Winter coats
  • Winter boots
  • High quality socks
  • Blankets
  • new/packaged underwear and long-underwear
  • Items on our Amazon Wishlist: click here.

We’re looking for volunteers to help us organize donations so that youth can find what they need. Interested in helping out? Email us at
