Why The Kearney Center?
The Kearney Center provides 24-hour comprehensive emergency services to individuals experiencing or on-the-verge of experiencing homelessness within the Big Bend (8-county) region. This facility serves as a point of entry into assistance by coordinating services and responding to the immediate needs of individuals until appropriate permanent housing can be arranged.
Our mission is to provide temporary emergency shelter and housing-focused services, with the goal of making homelessness rare, brief, and nonrecurring. In service to this mission, we are committed to providing a safe environment that promotes dignity and respect.
