The HSC is launching a Multi-disciplinary Street Outreach Team to address substance use disorder and social determinants of health by engaging with unsheltered individuals. A $100,000 grant from Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) of Arizona's Mobilize AZ initiative will provide a portion of the funding for the program. Initially, a team of four employees will take this "holistic approach to the streets" with the goal of getting unsheltered people to engage in programs and ultimately end their homelessness. The HSC team will coordinate with other organizations to provide expertise in disciplines such as medical care, behavioral health, youth, veterans, and more. “We are extremely grateful to BCBS for this seed funding to build and launch this new team,” said Amy Schwabenlender, HSC Executive Director. As the Team gets to work we will share regular updates!
