Effective immediately the homeless Veterans walk in center more recently referred to as the “Veterans Outreach Center” will change its name to the VA Community Resource and Referral Center.

The center is located at 1223 Center St. Suite 17 in downtown Des Moines. The main office is open Monday-Thursday 7:30 am to 5:00 pm and Friday 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. This site provides to VA eligible Veterans free walk-in showers, laundry, internet, phone and full range of service for homeless Veterans on site. We have remodeled our current space to provide a day/group room for Veterans during business hours.

From this expanded space Day/Group room activities will be increased so that Veterans can spend time on site receiving all the services necessary for them to recover from homelessness. There will also be some local agencies participating on site to provide services to homeless Veterans. This will essentially be a one stop walk-in center.

To contact the VA Community Resource and Referral Center please call 699-5637.
