Epworth’s Street Outreach Services Program

Street Outreach Services supports youth between the ages of 11 and 20 who are experiencing housing instability or unhealthy home lives in an effort to help the youth obtain safe, permanent housing. If youth are experiencing homelessness they are eligible for services through the age of 24.
  • Mobile outreach to distribute food, hygiene kits, safer sex items, educational materials and assistance with accessing safe housing or shelter.
  • Drop-in Center provides comprehensive services such as laundry and shower facilities; safer sex kits and classes, nutrition, clothing and hygiene items; common areas for “hanging out” (playing games, watching TV); computer work stations; cooking instruction; access to community resources such as STI and HIV testing, healthcare, legal aid, and documentation assistance; resource referrals and information; and group sessions offering skill training, recreational activities, and support for LGBTQ youth and allies. The Drop-in Center has open access during weekday afternoons and some evenings. Youth ages 21 and older can access the Drop-in Center by appointment or when in crisis. Staff are available to assist with locating shelter and referrals for housing.
  • Case Managers provide crisis counseling and intervention, advocacy, resource referrals and connections, tangible items (such as clothes and food), opportunities for community service and support with identifying and achieving goals.
