Bill Mehr Drop-In Center

The Bill Mehr Drop-in Center opened on May 6, 2002, with one employee, and several volunteers.  Bill Mehr was the leader of the effort. He spent much of his time at the Center and in the surrounding woods.  He also stayed in contact with the police department, hospital, bus and cab companies. 

At the end of the pilot period, on March 31, 2003 the Center was closed for evaluation.  Bill prepared a report outlining the accomplishments and made suggestions for a future permanent Drop-in Center. 

The Department of Social Services recommended that the Cooperative Council of Ministries operate a permanent Drop-in Center at the Prince William County Winter Shelter site.  

On June 24, 2003 the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors approved Resolution 03-556, establishing a permanent Drop In Center with the understanding that the Cooperative Council of Ministries (working with it's independent 501c(3) affiliate Servants at Work) would pay for all staffing, supplies, laundry, and partial utilities. Today this costs almost $50,000 per year.

Your financial support is greatly appreciated.
