What is 'Street Outreach'?

Street Outreach means building trust & relationships with people experiencing homelessness and poverty where they are: ON THE STREETS. Street Outreach means listening attentively, sharing harm reduction information, community resources, advocacy, & HOPE! Yellow Brick Road outreach workers walk the streets of Portland, Oregon EVERY NIGHT OF THE YEAR meeting youth and youth-identified adults who may want some assistance getting their lives on healthier & happier paths. We tend to focus on folks under 30, but remember: OUR SERVICES & SUPPLIES ARE AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE IN THE PORTLAND, OREGON COMMUNITY! If you need some assistance or simply an open ear or new pair of socks and a band aid, just look for the folks carrying the bags with bright yellow patches. If you live in the Portland area and are over 18 and wish to volunteer, contact us today to get involved.
