Street Outreach

The Street Outreach Program disseminates information about RHY services, provides food, clothing and other resources; makes referrals to other service providers; and transports youth back to their homes or relatives, to crisis shelters, or to other safe locations. The Street Outreach teams develop rapport with youth in the streets and elsewhere, directly informing runaway and homeless youth and youth at risk for homelessness about the available services and refer youth who need services to the Drop-In Centers and other RHY programs. The Street Outreach program serves as a point of entry into the wider DYCD RHY system.
