Thank you for visiting the YMCA Van Buren Center webpage, an emergency shelter serving families and single adults. Maintaining safe, accessible emergency shelter for fellow Central Ohioans while resolving their homelessness crisis is our primary function.
In reference to recent specific concerns, we have no such policy at the Van Buren Center or any of our YMCA Housing/Shelter Programs. While the source of this misinformation is unknown, we do know and share our gratitude to staff that have responded to crises, saving numerous lives after administering naloxone.
Your advocacy is welcomed at the Van Buren Center. Consider volunteering your time and expertise to our neighbors during this unprecedented time.
