Effective Outreach Strategies for People Experiencing Homelessness
Presented by National Health Care for the Homeless Council
People who are homeless are a vulnerable population that can be elusive – even intimidating – for outreach workers. This webinar will talk about why it is particularly important for health centers to focus on this population, and provide effective outreach strategies to those without homes. Content will include common problems to finding and engaging this population into care, best practices to overcoming these challenges, and practical tips for frontline workers. Find out how good outreach skills can not only improve health, but end homelessness and transform lives.
• Participants will learn why it is important that health centers engage the homeless population;
• Participants will understand common reasons why people who are homeless are not engaged in care; and,
• Participants will be able to identify at least five best practices for engaging people who are homeless in care.
