The Value of Hub Outreach

Hub Outreach is a critical component of addressing homelessness, as it allows for the provision of essential services to those in need and helps to reduce the number of individuals experiencing homelessness.  It is a continuous process of trust building in order to unlock the opportunity to help an indiviudual experiencing homelessness take the needed in their journey out of homelessness.  Listed below are some of the reasons why Outreach is so important.

Building Trust and Relationships

The Hub’s Outreach team often establish relationships with individuals experiencing homelessness over time, which can help them to better understand the individual’s needs and build trust, making it more likely that the person will accept assistance and services.

Identifying and Connecting to Services

Outreach team-members are able to identify the specific needs of the individuals they engage with, and connect them to the appropriate services, such as emergency shelter, healthcare, and case management.

Reducing the Number of Homeless

Outreach helps to reduce the number of individuals experiencing homelessness by connecting them to services that will help them to secure and maintain housing.

Providing Assistance

Our Outreach team can proactively assist individuals experiencing homelessness by providing essentials such as food and hygiene kits.

Educating the Community

The Hub Outreach team can educate the community and partners about the causes and effects of homelessness, and help to dispel stereotypes and myths about individuals experiencing homelessness.

Saving Lives

Outreach can save lives by providing individuals experiencing homelessness with the resources and support they need to survive, and by connecting them to services that will help them to improve their well-being.

The Hospitality Hub’s Outreach team meets individuals where they are—in parks, underpasses, and abandoned buildings—to connect them with a path out of homelessness.

 “Both Work Local and Outreach programs grew over this past year to have a more targeted focus on in-depth assistance for clients. Work Local is not only about work, but also about bringing clients into the Continuum of Care. Street Outreach Specialists have worked to increase partnerships in the community, allowing us to reach more individuals experiencing homelessness.”
