About Trinity Center
Imagine that you are homeless. You may have a job, but don’t make enough to pay the rent. Money is tight, food is scarce and you are very discouraged.

Now there is a place in Walnut Creek that offers respite, food, clothing, showers and a place to do laundry. Trinity Center, a respite and community center for the homeless and working poor, serves breakfast and a hot lunch, provides laundry and shower facilities, mail service, access to telephones, clothing and toiletries, mail, food pantry, available job postings, onsite counselors and advocacy for social services, and a safe and accepting place off the street for two days a week.

During construction of St. Paul’s Commons, Trinity Center is located at 1271 S. California Blvd, downtown Walnut Creek.
