    "When I came to the drop-in, I was homeless, working the streets and unable to even couch surf.At HIPS, I was able to shower, I was able to eat, and hang out in a safe place to gather my thoughts. Things are still tough, but I have an efficiency and am grateful that the time at HIPS helped me get there”. -2019 client
