Each person experiencing homelessness has unique needs. As an entry point to housing and support services for many people, street outreach is an essential part of ending homelessness. Street Outreach provides a human connection to the services and resources that can help people survive and someday thrive.
Street Outreach workers show up every day, meeting clients where they’re at — engaging with clients on the street, in the woods, or in encampments — and walk alongside them on their journey to stability. The goal is to build supportive and trusting relationships over-time that can lead to service connections and housing that meets an individual’s unique needs.
Street Outreach partners cover 100% of Deschutes County on a weekly basis and on an as needed basis in Crook and Jefferson Counties. Outreach is offered by professional service partners and volunteer groups.
