Outreach workers on the North Shore assist homeless individuals living on the streets and in the woods to become housed, while then providing wrap around support services that provide stability. Whether housed or not, Outreach works with each individual to ensure they receive necessary supports. This work ranges range from moving guests between shelters and SROs, to locating donations to “furnish” a new living space, to offering warm drinks or cold water, harm reduction supplies, socks, or blankets.
The North Shore team provides “deep woods” services as many of their guests live in local ravines and forests, often resistant to moving from their camps into a shelter or housing. North Shore’s outreach team operates in District of North Vancouver, City of North Vancouver, District of West Vancouver and Squamish Nation.
