Oakland Street Outreach
In coordination with the City of Oakland’s Human Services Department, street-based outreach workers provide incident- and “hot spot”-specific outreach in high-crime areas at hours measured to be of peak need — nights and weekends. Outreach workers maintain a consistent presence in these neighborhood and, along with case managers, create relationships with high-risk youth and young adults and connect them to appropriate services and resources. Teams also work on longer-range truce negotiation and conflict mediation.
