Provides practical support to individuals and/or families who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, experiencing a housing crisis, or requiring assistance to maintain accommodations Lethbridge Community Outreach Services provides practical support to individuals and/or families who are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless, experiencing a housing crisis, or requiring assistance to maintain accommodations.
The support will be provided in a timely, flexible and person-centered approach and will focus on reducing and preventing homelessness. Services will be provided based on the philosophy of encouraging self-worth and independence
Community Outreach Services was designed to create and maintain relationships with existing outreach services within the City of Lethbridge and to ensure all organizations providing outreach services have up-to-date information on programs and services, initiatives related to homelessness and emergency assistance.
By creating a team concept between outreach agencies, opportunities such as training, reporting mechanisms and problem-solving techniques will provide a “seamless” system of service delivery within inter-agency developed protocols.
Outreach Support Services, in combination with other short and long-term solutions, have been identified as one of the keys to ensuring people are able to secure and maintain the right housing option for their situation.
