Community outreach workers on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver assist homeless individuals living in the parks and alleys to become housed and then provide wrap around support services ensuring stability. Whether housed or not, Outreach works with each individual ensuring they receive necessary supports. This work ranges from moving guests between shelters and Single Resident Occupancies (SROs), to locating donations to “furnish” a new living space, to offering warm drinks or cold water, harm reduction supplies, socks, or blankets.
Outreach teams are located at Al Mitchell Place and Powell Street Getaway.
For more information, please contact (604) 255-8339 (Powell Street Getaway) or (604) 681-0092, extension 2 (Al Mitchell Place).
