The goal of the CLHC Street Outreach Program is to locate individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness and link them to main stream beinifts to help get them off of the streets and into permanent housing. The program is designed to be administered in whatever location the participant feels most comfortable in whether that is an office, the library, or even their own campsite within the community.
The primary focus of the program is to work with participants to help establish supportive relationships with their case manager and local community members. From their the program works to give people advice and support and hopefully enhance the possibility that they will access necessary services and supports that will help them move off the streets.
The CLHC Street Outreach program also sponsors a joint 4 AM Outreach Program with Volunteers of America of Central Louisiana to help verify participant's homelessness for elgibility purposes for various housing programs.
