The Brisben Center is excited to announce a new opportunity to be part of the Brisben story— Community Partners. The Center’s Community Partners are businesses, and civic, social and fraternal organizations committed to supporting an experienced nonprofit with a basic humanitarian mission — delivering the most essential services of food, secure and safe shelter, and a second chance at independence to hundreds of our community’s homeless men, women and children.

Existing and new Community Partners are local businesses and organizations that choose to actively support the Thurman Brisben Center — our community’s 80-bed, year-round, 24-hours a day, emergency homeless shelter.  We are blessed by our many longtime existing business and organizational supporters, and welcome them, as well as new area businesses and organizations to become a Community Partner.

Community Partners support the center in a variety of ways and will be recognized at the Brisben Center website and at the Center.  Community Partner activities on behalf of the homeless will be recognized at and at our Facebook page.  And subject to partner approval, special activities will be noted in the Center’s e-newsletter and shared with the media.
