We outreach to clients year round offering them emergency and longer-term food, clean drinking water, hygiene supplies, socks, clothing, sleeping bags, tents, other survival supplies, and information on how to access social services. We provide this service without cost, expectation or judgment. Monthly Outreach proudly serves up to 650 homeless individuals and their pets.
