Seattle program has created a core leadership group, implemented a solid training program and continues to recruit and train volunteers. We started our street outreach efforts on Capitol Hill in June 2009. Our Street Outreach counselors go to the streets to reach out to homeless and at-risk youth. We connects with homeless and at-risk youth to let them know that there are people who are concerned about their well-being and are there to help.
This critical bonding is the first step towards helping these kids get off the streets and live a better life.
