The Interactive Resource Center is an innovative day resource center for people experiencing homelessness or trying to keep from becoming homeless in Guilford County, North Carolina. Opening during the difficult winter of 2008-2009 as a temporary day center run by volunteers, the IRC quickly became an important fixture in the Greensboro landscape, and never closed.
We have grown much in the few short years we have been in Greensboro, including moving into a sunny and inviting 22,000-square-foot building on the eastern edge of Greensboro’s downtown business district includes, among other things, showers, laundry, barbershop, phone bank, mail room, day room, computer lab, medical clinic, gardens and bike maintenance area.
The IRC continues to grow. Beyond our fundamental services, we have become a community platform for ideas and creative solutions to homelessness. We provide a space for our community partners to local and best serve their target populations, and we also provide a unique location for community members to interact with and develop relationships with each other.
Our mission statement reads: “The Interactive Resource Center assists people who are homeless, recently homeless or facing homelessness reconnect with their own lives and with the community at large.”
