Homeless Outreach Court Support Program

The Homeless Outreach Court, with more that 900 participants, breaks the cycle of citations, infractions and incarceration that make these individuals ineligible for the assistance they need.  The program gives participants credits for taking the steps necessary to becoming productive members of society.  We provide:

  • Funds for transitional housing
  • Medication purchases
  • Funding for and facilitation of emergency medical and dental treatment
  • Bus passes so participants can access services
  • Reunification of participants with families in or out-of-state

 

Kathryn's Story

Kathryn was living on the streets while trying to take care of her son who was struggling with cancer.  She landed in Court due to traffic-related tickets.  Through the Homeless Outreach Court program, she was able to get her license back and pay for her tickets through community service.  She is now sober, living in her own apartment and attending school to become a medical-assistant.
