Homelessness is an experience — not a person.

At the Interactive Resource Center, we invite people experiencing — or at risk for — homelessness to be part of a supportive community free of barriers. Working alongside our guests, we provide services that help our Guilford County neighbors reconnect with their own lives and with the community at large. The Interactive Resource Center promotes dignity, respect, connection and empowerment in an environment where trust and relationships matter. We’re engaging those we serve in building their own progress toward a life without homelessness.

Just be at the IRC.

Our inviting 22,000-square-foot community center at 407 E. Washington Street offers, among other critical resources: showers, laundry, barbershop, phone bank, mailroom, computer lab, medical clinic, gardens and a bike maintenance area. We welcome you.
