Homelessness in Indianapolis touches all types of people—men, women, veterans, families, and teens. Many suffer from mental health challenges, job loss, or domestic violence, but all of them need support.
The Professional Blended Street Outreach Team, which Know Outlets funds will directly benefit, works to match homeless individuals with services that will best meet their needs with the ultimate goal of helping each individual become self-sufficient.
Outreach team members are on the streets weekly Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Team members can also respond to requests for assistance.
Outreach Team Stories
“The Professional Outreach Team helps individuals like Jennifer*, a homeless woman in Indianapolis who faced domestic violence and was initially resistant to external assistance. Through recurring contact over several months, the teams helped her obtain identification and referred her to employment programming and Horizon House. After two months in a shelter, she was stable enough to interview for jobs and transition to an apartment of her own.” - Wayne, Salvation Army
