The Weingart Center is one of the nation's largest and most comprehensive providers of services to homeless men and women. The Center offers a broad range of services, with a single mission: to enable thousands of homeless men and women to achieve self-sufficient lives off the streets. The Center does not simply provide shelter, it provides rehabilitation, training and job assistance that is designed to get people off the street permanently, not temporarily. More than ever, the Center is in need of funding, due to reduced funding from the State.
