Bill Mehr Drop-In Center (DIC)
The Bill Mehr Drop-in Center opened on May 6, 2002, with one employee, and several volunteers.Bill Mehr became the leader of the effort and spent much time physically at the Center and in the surrounding woods.He also kept in contact with the police department, the hospital, and the transit folks. At the end of the pilot period, March 31, 2003, the Center closed for evaluation.Bill prepared a report outlining the accomplishments and suggestions for a permanent Drop-in Center. The Department of Social Services recommended that CCoM be permitted to operate a permanent Drop-in Center at the Winter Shelter site.The BOCS approved the proposal with Resolution 03-556, dated June 24, 2003, allowing the operation of a permanent Center with the understanding that CCoM would pay for all staffing, supplies, laundry, and partial utilities.
