Homeward Bound meets people where they are: in the woods, under bridges, on the street.
The Outreach team is focused on reaching the most vulnerable homeless individuals living on the streets of our community to connect them with permanent supportive housing, healthcare, disability income, and community mental health services. We meet people where they are: in the woods, under bridges, on the street.
