LICH Street Outreach Hotline; Hotline is not staffed and staff will return your call within 48-72 hours
What is Street Outreach?
Street outreach teams go out into the community to connect with people living unsheltered and try to connect them to services. Some teams can provide essential items, such as food, clothes, and/or toiletries. Others provide housing-focused case management, substance use or mental health support.
