Helping the Homeless

Our Washington County outreach teams have training in behavioral health disorders. They work closely with other community stakeholders to interact with homeless individuals in the community. 

Sheppard Pratt’s homeless outreach teams are sensitive to the challenges facing people who are homeless. We use our interactions to build trust and identify each individual’s unique needs. Next, we strive to connect each person with external services that add stability to their lives. Those services may include:

  • Crisis intervention
  • Employment support, including job training
  • Housing assistance
  • Psychosocial support
  • Referrals to primary healthcare services
  • Substance abuse support

Support for Homeless Veterans
