Unashamed Resource Center 

Our mission at the Unashamed Resource Center is to provide a safe and supportive space for transitional age youth and young adults in the Middlesex County area. We strive to meet their needs by offering a wide range of services and resources, with the ultimate goal of empowering these individuals to overcome their challenges and achieve self-sufficiency.


We understand that life can be difficult for young people in this age range, and we aim to create a non-judgmental environment where they can feel accepted and valued. Our center is open to those facing homelessness, lack of basic needs, and other life challenges, as well as those at risk of homelessness. We do not charge our clients for any of our services. 


At the Unashamed Resource Center, we provide comprehensive support to address the various needs of our clients. This includes case management, crisis intervention, and referrals to other services. We also offer essential resources such as food, internet access, and shower facilities. Our recreational space and welcoming home-like environment foster a sense of belonging and community.

By expanding our services to include homeless and at-risk transition age youth, we aim to reach and support approximately 100 young people annually. We are committed to making a positive impact on their lives, helping them overcome adversity, and empowering them to build a successful future. 


At the Unashamed Resource Center, we believe that every young person deserves a chance to thrive and reach their full potential. We are dedicated to providing the necessary resources and support to make that a reality for the transitional age youth and young adults in our community.
