Why neighborhood-based outreach is the best response to homelessness Learn More
Outreach begins with connection.
We start all outreach activities by forging trust and building relationships with the people we meet. From these relationships, our outreach team is able to link people with the services and support they need to improve their lives in big and small ways.
While all people living outside face common struggles inherent to homelessness, each person has a different story to tell and a unique set of goals for their future. Our clients are often the victims of discrimination and violence, suffer from mental illness, and struggle with substance use. We tailor our outreach efforts to meet our client’s specific needs, with an understanding of their unique personality and experience.
Though they might vary in their approach, our outreach staff all work toward the same over-arching goal: To show our clients that they deserve dignity and connection, and enable them to access to services that meet their needs – from food, water, and warm clothing, to housing and healthcare.

We currently conduct outreach in neighborhoods throughout King County.
