Our 2017 records show we received over 700 calls from individuals seeking some for of emergency assistance. Streetreach  provided 654 Emergency Night Stays to 131 individuals . This does include (4) seniors over 65, (7) veterans, (15) youth between 16-19 yrs. old, (11) children under 16 yrs.
  • Since we are a 100% volunteer organization we are proud that we were able to provide this many services.  This was our busiest year ever, and we also housed long-term in campers. This allowed for families to seek resources.   
  • This count does not include (2) individuals that have been housed in our office for 9 months &  2 individuals that have been housed in a camper on our property for 4 months. 
  • These figures do not include assistance with rental assistance, electric bills, gas vouchers or food packages. 

We do expect to see this trend to continue due to NO permanent shelter, No public transit system, lack of affordable housing and the opioid crisis.

Please keep in mind that we are ALL VOLUNTEERS and may not be available for several hours. Since NO one is allowed into sheltering facilities after 6pm, all calls received  after that time will be returned the following day. This is for safety reasons.   If it is an emergency, please call 911.  
At this time we have NO FUNDS for POWER STATS.
Financial support is critical to our daily operations and every little bit counts! This winter has been extremely hard with the low temperatures and prolonged cold.  A simple monthly commitment or one time gift goes a long way. We appreciate your support, it really does change the lives of the individuals we serve.
