Also assists in obtaining birth certificates and state IDs and provides travel assistance for homeless persons and a free monthly legal clinic. Staffed by volunteers from area churches; sponsored by Downtown Churches Association.

Legal clinic is the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm through HELP (Homeless Experience Legal Protection), a volunteer program that provides legal help for homeless people. Memphis volunteers are coordinated by Baker, Donelson, Caldwell & Berkowitz law firm with Memphis Area Legal Services and the Community Legal Center.

Guests must first go through an intake interview on Mon, Wed or Fri 9:30 pm - 1:00 pm before receiving most HUB services. Guests can use HUB services for up to three months. The HUB is not a drop-in center, a day shelter or place to hang out, but a place for homeless persons to take care of business that will lead them out of homelessness.

Provides half the price of a long-distance one-way Greyhound bus ticket for homeless guests of the center who can document that they have employment and a more stable living arrangement in another city. Funds are limited and each case is reviewed individually.
