The "Street Outreach" video series is designed to equip homeless service providers with skills and knowledge to do their jobs well. Rather than talking theoretically about skills and knowledge, these training videos show providers practicing them in real world settings.

The three episodes in the "Street Outreach" series represent a condensed timeline. The process of building rapport with someone experiencing homelessness can take weeks, months, or even years. The videos are intended to show how that process might unfold over time. Viewers should not expect that all outreach encounters move as quickly as those depicted in the videos.

Episode 1 - Initial Contact
This episode illustrates how one experienced outreach worker, who is mentoring a new outreach worker, conducts street outreach to people experiencing homelessness. This episode focuses on engaging people and building relationships so that they can be connected with outreach services.
