We help adults and families living without homes, or who are at risk of homelessness, by linking them to a variety of resources and providing behavioral health care throughout the community, including at local shelters. Our Street Outreach program provides three types of outreach (1) jurisdictional street outreach, pairing a Street Outreach worker with a Law Enforcement officer who both canvas areas within their jurisdiction looking for and engaging with individuals and families who are living street homeless, (2) dispatchable street outreach and (3) targeted street outreach which are aimed at assisting the most high risk populations.
PREVENTION & DIVERSION
We have targeted prevention intensive case management services for individuals who are not homeless and are housed, but have outstanding rent or utilities.
Family Works is a program that works with children from identified targeted schools in Pinellas County and their families to decrease homelessness and achieve stable and permanent housing potential. It includes assessing, linking, coordinating, and monitoring services from mental health, social, and educational aspects. The team will collaborate and develop service plans in partnership with the family and work closely with the family to identify services needed in the home to maintain in a stable environment. Services are provided in-home or in the community. The program works closely with the family to connect with resources and offer educational, financial or other assistance as needed or appropriate.
