Program Description


"The programs are outreached based, which means our staff hit the streets to locate hard-to-reach people. Many of our participants were connected with a variety of other programs in the past, but failed out of those programs because of their complexities….we may bring toiletries, food, and clothes to a homeless camp and visit for a matter of months to build trust with someone before they agree to join services."
