About Us

The 1st Street Armoury strives to collaborate with local agencies and community members to address three main program areas: youth outreach, homeless recovery, and community engagement. Since opening our doors in 2009, the 1st Street Armoury has focused on addressing community needs holistically, offering office space for human services agencies and event and meeting space for community groups. We also coordinate direct service programs that address the demands of poverty, hunger, and homelessness in our community. These programs include a monthly food pantry, a “back pack” program for food insecure school children, new immigrant engagement services, and a homeless recovery program. We pride ourselves on addressing this broad range of challenges by focusing on collaboration with local agencies and a strong community volunteer base.
