Program Structure

Weingart Center seeks to offer an integrated, coherent experience to our clients. At the same time, we recognize that there are distinct populations among people who are homeless that have similar needs. To utilize our resources in an efficient manner, we have structured programs around these distinct population groups. We offer both residential programs, and community-based programs for the homeless population.

Our residential programs are primarily transitional housing with wraparound services. All of our residents are in our 11-story hotel building at 6th and San Pedro. Each floor has restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities. Our transitional residential programs go beyond the emergency shelter approach by providing housing for up to two years along with comprehensive wrap-around services including case management, job training, and other treatment services.
