Focused on the "hardest-to-reach" chronically homeless population, the outreach team works in partnership with city staff, local service providers, health professionals, law enforcement, and the community at-large to help people overcome chronic homelessness and connect with the services they need to gain stable housing and achieve self-sufficiency.
