Boyle Street Community Services Street Outreach Team has been operating for over two years now reaching out to homeless individuals in 6 high needs areas of the city. ESPC has been a supporter from the beginning, sitting on the advisory committee and on one occasion accompanied the workers on a walk through the river valley to meet some of the folks living in tents. Though the work at time may be daunting, the concept behind the Outreach Workers work is simple: it’s through positive interaction and rapport building that relationships are forged. It may start out with giving someone a bottle of water or clean dry socks, but ultimately, the staff are working toward helping the person find and keep permanent housing.
