About Street Outreach
TGTHR operates a Street Outreach program, where we are on the street 5 days a week, connecting youth and other people experiencing homelessness with our services and services in the greater community. The goal is to build relationships with young people living on the streets so they feel safe to enter our programs. TGTHR’s Street Outreach Team is often the first point of contact for young people accessing our services. Our Street Outreach Team consists of our Street Outreach Manager and two trained volunteers.
