Homeless Outreach Program: This program is open daily from 11-2pm, Monday-Thursday with Friday reserved for appointments. Our staff provides intensive, holistic case management, taking as much time with each guest as is needed, from 15 minutes to an hour. Guests state their needs and the staff empowers them to achieve their goals. We work with the most marginalize people in the City: the chronic and newly homeless; prisoners upon re-entry, people suffering from addictions and those with physical and mental illness. Our staff advocate for housing, medical care, and on legal issues. They also provide basic needs such as clothing, toiletries, phone use, bus passes, assistance with legal documents and prescriptions.
