SAMHSA Webinar: Housing-Focused Outreach - An Emerging Model
Homeless outreach has typically focused on engagement and meeting people's immediate and short-term needs: food, clothing and blankets, transportation to shelter, and linkages to services. With the advent of Housing First and rapid rehousing approaches, homeless service agencies are shifting away from the idea of outreach as a mechanism for serving clients on the streets to outreach as a tool for moving clients off the streets directly into housing. This webinar will describe the evolution of outreach over the past three decades, highlight the principles and practices of housing-focused outreach, and provide examples of this approach from around the United States.
