Over 1800 people sleep on our streets, under our bridges, and in our parks each night. The need for effective responses to the tragedy of homelessness in our community is clear. JOIN’s 8 Person Outreach Team addresses this urgent need by engaging homeless individuals and families with children who are physically sleeping outside or in their cars. Outreach Workers work with people to identify and overcome their barriers to housing, partnering with local agencies and advocating with local landlords to open the doors to permanent housing. JOIN’s Outreach Program strives to emphasize the strengths of the people we serve and support their efforts to move into permanent housing.
