BEDS Street Outreach benefits local communities
The BEDS Plus Street Outreach team, the first line of defense in our mission to help those who are experiencing homelessness, works tirelessly to find those who are without shelter.
Local police departments and communities we serve praise the Street Outreach team for the service it provides. The work the Street Outreach team does to help those on the streets frees up precious resources that communities would otherwise have to use to respond to those experiencing homelessness. Those experiencing homeless who accept shelter are placed in safe environments by the Street Outreach team.
"Honestly, I cannot appreciate you guys enough," a Tinley Park police officer said. "This (program) should be much more well known."
