Meeting and engaging young adultsStreet Outreach counselors go on the streets and try to reach homeless young adults (ages 18-25). The single greatest need for homeless and street young adults is continuous caring and real support.A viable street outreach program is not solely concerned with finding homeless young adults who are interested in staying in a shelter. While identifying young adults who may require shelter assistance, support must also be provided to those who, for one reason or another: (1) have to live on the streets, (2) aren't ready for more of the establishment, (3) are afraid to go to a shelter, (4) have a police record and fear incarceration, or (5) are afraid that they will be sent home.
