The Jordan Center
The Jordan Center is a peer drop-in center in downtown St Helens that represents equality and inclusion. We have done our best to create a safe space for community members to come inside out of the elements and enjoy a non-judgmental environment with other peers.
We offer a few things to help with barriers clients may be facing, such as:
- A community clothing closet
- A washer and dryer
- Sack lunches donated by Grace Baptist
- A safe place to charge phones
- Hot coffee & cup of noodles
- Many amazing groups
- Connecting people to resources with
our community partners
Peers from Team HOW are at the Jordan Center during drop-in hours Monday through Friday from 3- 5PM. Clients are able to access services without Team HOW, so long as they coordinate with them for assistance.
The Jordan Center is always taking donations for the community closet, anything is accepted but they especially need blankets, jackets, socks, and larger shoes (size 11-13).
Right now Team HOW is doing a Winter Warmth drive, which are the blue barrels you may have seen on campus. They are accepting blankets, coats, and sleeping bags for clients in need this Winter.
"I started coming to the Jordan Center while a client at Pathways drug and alcohol treatment facility. I was introduced to the how team ,which gave me a positive outlet to discuss the things I planned on doing in my recovery. All the staff gave my advice on how to make positive change in my life. I now have 5 months clean and sober , full time job, my own vehicle, peace of mind and a part of a few different meetings going on at the Jordan Center. I love the accountability that has been given by opening up the Jordan Center and the trust in me to be responsible."
